对材料质感和空间本质的感知一直是设计师Jeff Weng项目的标志性特征。他擅长通过比例和材质的操作，塑造一个模糊了新旧元素的空间。通常，他的设计像是在未知时空中徘徊，从不同的时代角度中发现毫无冲突的新想法。从简单形体到不同材料的选择，人们可以从他的作品中发现他一直遵循的观念。虽然作品呈现结果不同，但他大多数材料的选择都是从自然中汲取灵感并进一步强调材质的温暖感。在这个山区住宅中，人们可以看到Jeff Wang一直偏爱的简单纹理与现代简洁材料。这些与主人的私人收藏品一起，呈现了项目新旧之间温暖的交融。
Conscious about the material texture and the nature of space, has always been designer Jeff Weng’s projects signature characteristics. He is good at manipulating proportions and material texture creating a space that is implicit with scenes of old and new ambiguity. It often seems like wandering in the unknown space-time finding fresh ideas from perspectives of different times without conflicts. From the thoughtful simple forms to various material selections, we can follow consistent thoughts among his works. Even though the results are different, most of the material selections are inspired from nature with the emphasis on the warmth of material textures. Within this mountain residence, we see Jeff Weng’s usual preference for the simple textures and modern conciseness of the materials. And because of the owner’s private collections, the project presents a nice blend of warmth between the old and the new.

Surrounded by greenery with amazing mountain views as well as a spacious garden that is the reason the owner full in love with this property. With this in mind designer Jeff Weng carefully constructed the relationship between the interior space and the exterior environment and actively created a flow of air, light and green landscape into the space. Hoping the residents can experience the beautiful seasonal evolution the designer broke away from the protective fortress-style home enclosure to allow nature to freely flow into the living space. He minimized solid wall partitions, via pass thoughts or borrowed scenery to allow the sense of greenery and air to reside within. With carefully constructed views, the perspective of movement continues repeatedly towards the outside thereby expanding beyond the limits of the physical frame.

The owner hoped to retain the original sense of openness within the space and did not want to construct a large mezzanine level to expand the number of floor area. Therefore, only a small mezzanine was added to store a canoe and house a detached reading space. Other storage and basic functional configuration were resolved in the standard floor plan. Those two small mezzanines emphasize the line of sight of the perspective of the extension.

The owner is a serious collector, favoring old style furniture and unique objects and looking forward to incorporating his accumulated collection into the new home. Since the majority of furnishings were already in place, how to organize the various elements in space and in harmony was a different topic. After reviewing all the collection articles, the designer believes that the original purpose of these objects serve more than just aesthetics purpose. They actually served more or less a practical function in the past. Therefore, during his selection process, practicality of an object was the main criteria so while these objects seems to be decoration they are also closely linked to contemporary life. The collections is given meaningful memories through daily usage. Decorative ornaments have become part of daily living.

With the expectation that all kinds of objects can be harmonious with each other in the space the material selection consisted of a warm color tone with slightly aged wood or leather textures constructing the finishes relationship. Additional new furniture was needed for the space, with the same emphasis on the practical nature such as an industrial style of simplicity. Clean simple geometric beauty is the basis of a rational and rich composition in the space.

In addition, the owner is very respectful regarding nature and ecology. All materials strove to be environmentally friendly and harmonious with nature. For example, the treatment wall in the living room is made of recycled cypress wood, utilizing the uneven surface to absorb the sound waves to enhance the interior acoustical effect.

除了有形的自然材料，时间性也是Jeff Wang 设计本质的一部分。因此物品的摆放有意识的遵循自然光源的方向和周围环境可能的观赏角度，让四季变化渗透到日常生活中。设计师通过结合所有的材料，试图留下时间的痕迹，让时间变得有形。住宅因此成为积累时间深度和温暖的生长有机体。
Apart from the tangible natural materials, time is also part of nature for Jeff Weng. Therefore, the placement of objects consciously follows the direction of the natural light source and the possible view out to the surroundings so the season changes can infiltrate everyday life. All combinations of materials were intended to allow the time to leave traces so that time becomes tangible and the house becomes the growing organism that accumulates the depth and warmth of time.
