Appreciation towards HAO Design for providing the following description:
The premises of this case is located in Haidian District of Beijing City.The owners of the home are a young couple with a young son.The master is a software engineer who usually works at home.He loves a simple and brisk style.The mistress is an editor of architecture books who longs to have a corner dedicated to allowing her to concentrate on her writing.
On the principle of not overdoing the interior decoration，as soon as one is inside the home，one can feel the beauty of the high ceiling structure.The white faux weathered stones stacked on the walls project a down-to-earth and leisurely atmosphere.

A 35“ping”（~116 square meter）home with a bare interior.For this family of three，the space is slightly small.The uncommon slanted ceiling design was an even greater challenge.HAO Design believed that construction of the ceiling，despite its difficulty，was actually its most beautiful area，and courageously proposed to preserve the ceiling.This action also served to preserve the space advantage of the ceiling height.To prevent the floor heating and ventiliation systems obstructing the view of the structure，the design and engineering stages must be extremely accurate in order to prevent huge losses that may arise from the smallest discrepancy.
To expand the sense of space，Designer made use of simple and brisk white and natural wood colors to highlight the textures of the materials and the linear design of the furniture.Open up wooden-framed big windows to accompany multi-plane glass，providing ample natural sunlight and light diffusion.

The configuration of the interior and the application of furniture is concocted according to the activity time, frequency and body status of people.

To give the white space layers more variety，earth cement special coating，plastic floor tiles，grey accents such as faux stone materials and metal bricks are used，while wood textures improve a home’s comfort.Space functionality is defined by the furniture and can change dynamically to make use of the space to the maximum extent possible.This open-ended，unfixed and flexible lifestyle not only represents the future of trend，but also reflects a core value of the modern family that HAO Design has pondered — to give to every member a comfortable body feeling and encourage a free and deep sentimental exchange.
