In Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam, Adam was gifted life the moment
he reached out to touch God’s hand. The “Touch of God”residential
plan uses “Light” as its overall design theme to design switches that
light up the residence and give the space a sense of God-given light
In area slightly larger than 33M2,the designer cleverly divided the
space into 7areas.
After passing through the entrance, people are first introduced to
a kitchen area that features a counter that can be used for cooking
and as a bar. The kitchen's equipment uses the smallest possible
dimensions to give the living room a spacious appearance. The living
room floor uses a dark-wooden veneer to divide the two rooms, and
a marbled wall behind the simplistic sofa is a base for extending the
light all the way from flat-screen TV into the marbled-wall's gaps.
The linear beams of lights embedded into the wall give the space
brightness and the cold-tempered marble warmth, just like the
life-giving rays of light. The wall that extends from the doorway
towards the master bedroom,guest room, study bathroom, and the
doors all use a wooden-surfacing of the same color with linear cuts
as decoration to make the overall façade’s design consistent.
In addition to the living room, dining room, kitchen and master
bedroom, the designer also put in a guest room, a study and a
changing room into the plan: the details put into such a compact
space gives the residence a modern minimalist style. The designer
used professional knowledge to overcome various problems during
the construction process including compartmentalization, sound
insulation, and concealment to create a residence of “Light.”
The back plate of the master bedroom’s bed uses a slanted
design to incorporate a linear down light with a vertical axis
to build on the theme of “Light,” and highlight the intensity
of the lighting design with minimal decorations. The circular
lights from the lighting design, the marbled construction,
and the down lights in the master bedroom bed's back
plate have all challenged traditional lighting beliefs.
