The driving design principles of the Brick Vault House respond to regionally available construction techniques – both traditional and contemporary – and the Spanish Mediterranean climate.

Residential Space Transformation by Liang Architecture Studio

Home is not merely a house or container of trivial things in daily life, but more a place that accommodates emotions and love. It’s like an intimate medium, which witnesses the interweaving of daily life and growth, records stories occur in the space, and conveys the occupant’s personality and attitude. This project is the transformation of a residence. Based on architectural thinking, the interior design enriches the layering of space by integrating interpenetrating surfaces, and realizes symbiosis between people and space in a free and balanced atmosphere. Natural light is what the clients expect most for the home. It’s a luxury to have sunlight change, stay and move throughout the entire space. As approaching the project, the design team tried the best to bring in the “luxury” daylight.

Acted as a dream-maker, the designer realized the client’s imagination on the “home” via ingen-ious treatment of the space. Natural wood colours set the overall tone of the residence, with dark and light shades forming a contrast and enriching a sense of layering.
