A two-storey foyer introduces this residence’s unifying theme of opulence: inlaid marble flooring, domed ceilings with silver-leaf inlay and hand-painted motifs, exotic-wood millwork, and custom-designed metal filigree accents. Floor-to-ceiling columns plus archways and curved transom windows add architectural weight and visual grounding. Lower-level pool features hand painted mural where forced-perspective creates illusion that a pathway behind the fully-functional fountain is always moving away from the observer.
This project has 3.3 meters height ceiling throughout, giving the residence a continuing elevated space of majesty and comfort. The ceiling has been deftly crafted to hold a hand made crystal chandelier, which hangs above the circular marble and wood inlaid coffee table in the living room. A similar chandelier with matching crystals resides above the dining table, establishing continuity from space to space. Sensuously rich materials have been combined for flooring patterns celebrating historical magnificence. A subtle and soft color palette was introduced to living room and dining room.
This project uses simple neoclassical framework to build a space that merges Chinoiserie and Western Classic together. Some Chinoiserie elements are used such as the Huizhou architectural archway that connects the main hallway and living room. Texture rich travertine stone, with its calming and elegant color is used throughout the majority of the public area.
The show home introduces the space concept of the Empire style with vertical wall panelling and jamb details, profiling a spacious architectural structure, displaying the Empire power and glory. The overall design borrows eighteenth century luxury living style as a backdrop, where the oriental culture begins its influence in the western world. Many exquisite oriental decorative arts and interior architectural elements are integrated into the design such as traditional arts and craft called Beijing Cao style Kite, Tibetan Buddhism embroidery, and the golden Chinese painting on black lacquered.
