To create comfortable space by pure material is the concept of Scarlett’s design and also her original intention of setting up Zhiwu Design. Scarlett has been working on space designing for more than 10 years, and she transferred her studio from the new first-tier cities to a small peaceful but energetic town—Fenshui Town, Tonglu. She intends to design every piece of her work elaborately in this town of slow life pace.

The exterior wall is connected to the building, and the door and window are designed asymmetrically. The coarse wall is mutually complimented by the smooth French window, enriching the sense of touch. The design of the steps at the entrance alleviates the splashing problem as well as increases the internal space level at the same time.
Filtering through the French window, the sunshine dances around the plants nearby the window as the sun rises and falls. The shadow brought by the window accompanies with the designers’ designing so that the temperature of the sun warms every piece of the work.

The interior space was two-story separated space, and the two space was blended together by a half-separation. Part of the separated space is adopted, increasing the space of interaction. The free laying of green plants at the each end of the stair makes it filled with natural vitality.

The stair is a space full of warmth, not only serving as a channel to connect the story both above and under it , but is also a space to connect moment to eternity, and to connect the known to the unknown in art world. Every step shows space of different perspectives, so the choosing of material and presenting way of the stair is designed with sense of lines, increasing the sense of ceremony of the space. However, the steps exhibit the effect of piano keys, though piled up with pure colored ceramic tile, which looks that it allows people to walk on joyous rhythm. Under the stair hide a washroom and a storeroom, maximizing the function of the space. Decorated with green potting plants, life is never lack of sense of ceremony.
