Indirect light creates a feel-good atmosphere – a villa by PrismDesign

The collaboration between Prism Design and Mori Design recently resulted in a project for a modern villa in Nanton, China. The architects create a feel-good atmosphere through the use of forms, colors, materials and indirect light. This project combines eastern and western aesthetics and tries to express the harmonious relationship between man and nature.

The design and planning phase lasted a year and a half. The designers have used elements of Chinese tradition, including art and colors, and combined them with Western culture. Lots of indirect light and dark wood characterize the whole house and create a mood.

The design of the first floor is based on the topic of transparency. The double-high ceiling in the dining area creates an airy, light atmosphere. A special highlight here is the interesting wall design made of brass plates and mirror elements. The indirect lighting also emphasizes the 3D effect.

The dining area adjoins a small, inviting living room with a seating area. Since this room is optically reduced, you feel safe and comfortable.

The basement houses the gym and home theater, while the second floor has two bedrooms. Particular attention was paid to the design of the children’s room. The children’s room is made of wood and white and is visually divided into three zones: for learning, sleeping and playing. Colorful accents in orange, red and blue bring a fresh note into the elegant, darkly furnished room. The acrylic hanging chair promises hours of fun or relaxation.

A black LED wall strip was attached to the wall behind the bed, which gives the room a unique atmosphere. This wall strip hides the light source and spreads a cozy light throughout the room.

The master bedroom is on the third floor, where cream tones and walnut wood surfaces also dominate. On the fourth floor is the private study, which can also be used as a bedroom.
