这座住宅坐落于圣地亚哥一个安静的住宅区- Normal Heights 中， 面对着宁静的街道， 背后则是一片披满植被的山谷。 房子一共三层：地下室有自己的休闲客厅， 厨房还有客房和车库；一楼的主空间是主客厅和一间客房； 二楼是房主的主要生活空间，有主卧和一个大型衣帽间。 每一层楼都有自己的阳台， 让主人和来这里的宾客随时都能欣赏山谷里的自然风景。
The building: The house is built on a hillside, and it is located in a quiet residential neighborhood – Normal Heights in San Diego. The back of the house is facing a valley and the front of the house is facing the street and the driveway. There are three floors in total; There is the main floor, the basement and second floor. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms, two living rooms and two kitchens. Each floor has a balcony facing the valley.
在给这座新建的房子做室内规划的时候， 设计团队主要的理念是创造一个简洁的空间，然后通过室内外的交流延伸增加空间的层次。 房主们工作非常忙碌，有着自己的牙医事务所，由于工作经常需要他们经常满世界飞来飞去， 这所房子其实算是他们偶尔得空时的度假屋，亲人朋友也会约在这里相聚，对大家来说是一个解压的机会， 让彼此放慢脚步细细品味生活好重整行囊让自己更好的迎接接下来的旅途。设计团队还特意使用了可回收的幕墙， 并利用太阳能作为主要功能系统， 意在对给这座宅子提供美好景致的大自然一些回馈。
This project is an interior fit-out for a newly built single family home. The design intent is to create a modern minimalistic home that blurs the boundary of indoor and outdoor living. The house is essentially a vacation home. It’s a place for family and friend reunion, place for vacation and also a place to decompress and to appreciate slow living.The whole building is solar powered and the exterior is cladded with recyclable rain screen.The client is the home-owner, who is a dentist and a dental business owner who travels around the world and collects art and home decors. The space is tends to leave empty to receive future discovered items. The design team has a vision to bring dreams to life. They interpreted the clients’ needs into design to create a unique living space. The house will not look like a typical San Diego house the client said. It should be clean, simple and bright. Necessary amenities are needed, but no clutters will be displayed. Each guest room represents a traveling or living experience.

这所住宅里的每一层楼都有着大大的窗户， 让加州的阳光更好的照进每一个空间。 每一个阳台和室内空间都由折叠玻璃门相连接， 门完全打开时可以让室内外完全连接， 整个山谷都像是为自己所有。 房子里的留白空间就像是画布， 房主和朋友们从世界各地收集来的艺术作品都可以在这里展出， 纪录他们的故事和脚步。设计团队选的设计材料大多是橡木， 为空间们增添了一分大自然的气息。
There are large windows and glass walls on each floor allow sunlight to come in. The large folding glass doors blur the line between indoor and outdoor living. White painted walls are seen throughout the house. The white walls make the house look like a canvas, or a gallery, there is always an empty wall for artworks the home-owner bring home from his world travels. White oak flooring is used on all the public areas and the bedrooms, to create a natural and cozy feeling. Each guest room and bathroom design is catered to client’s needs and personal taste. The décor of each bedroom represents a cultural element that tights back to his personal living experiences. The home-owner lived in Japan for over 7 years, and one guest room is specifically designed to mimic a Japanese tatami bed and a meditation spot.

主客厅里的厨房岛可供6-7个人坐， 后面的厨房储物间被一个毛玻璃的墙面隔开， 让空间显得既整洁又宽敞。主人们很少做饭， 但是却非常喜欢和朋友一起点餐享用， 厨房岛这时便成了完美的工作台， 一起看着风景准备一些小食或者是在电火炉前看看电影，都是无比惬意的事。
A build-in kitchen island can sit 5 – 6 people at the same time for dinning. Behind the kitchen is a pantry room that is divided by a full ceiling height glass wall, glazed with frosted glass and steel frame. Client doesn’t cook at home but often host party by using catering service. The large island becomes a party prep-working surface. The opposite side of the kitchen is a TV wall made out of concrete panels and electronic fireplace.

每一个卧室和洗手间的设计都是按房主的生活经历量身打造， 例如地下室的客房就有一个仿榻榻米的平台， 早上起来一睁眼面对的就是大窗外山谷里的鸟语清风，也让接下来的一整天都充满禅意。
Home theater and Japanese inspired platform bed is located on the basement. A build-in platform bed is made out of the white oak flooring, which is also used on the floor to create a seamless look. Two windows are on the platform bed allows tons of natural lights to come in and to create a view window to the valley outside. Bespoke leather floor pad is provided for a causal sitting or a good morning meditation. In the morning, guest who stays can bring in a coffee to the platform, sip in a cup of coffee, and listen to the birds chirping outside to start the day.
