Forest Villa is located on the outskirts of Hefei, near the Dashu Mountain National Forest Park in China. Its natural topography is as picturesque as a fairyland on earth, which prompted HAS Design and Research to create a unique space that coexists with eternity and spirituality. Paying homage to the environment, the architects Hung And Songkittipakdee (HAS) proposed a new design strategy that not only improved the functional spaces but also enhanced the site characteristics through three elements: shell, hole and void, for a sense of extraordinary living experience and to strengthen the relationship between the interior and exterior.
This building is more than a residential villa; Hung And Songkittipakdee created a space that is sustainable and timeless. It brings a strong sense of ritual and mystery and injects another spiritual symbol which respects the Chinese living tradition, looking, at the same time, to international contemporary residences and becoming the ideal space for high-end pieces of furniture, lighting, and interior objects from top international brands such as &Tradition, Carl Hansen & Søn, Cassina, HAY, Ligne Roset, Living Divani, Molteni&C, Vitra, Flos, Viabizzuno, etc.
