Revolution Road: An Architect-Designed Compound in Shanghai
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Confession: We've been hesitant at Remodelista to delve into the design scene in China; it's unknown territory for us. But we've been quietly bookmarking projects that speak to us (and make us want to get on a plane). First up: a compelling whitewashed brick compound in Shanghai by KUU Architects , a design practice run by Kok-Meng Tan and Satoko Saeki. Photographs via Kuu . Above: The Minus K house encompasses two separate residences that share a communal courtyard. Above: A whitewashed kitchen opens to the shared courtyard. Above: A view of the kitchen from the dining area Above: A brick and wood dining area. All of the brick walls are structural and painted white inside and out. Above: A living room features just the essentials. Above: Built-in shelving under, over, and next to a window. Above: A spartan bedroom with high and low windows. KUU Architects designed all of the elements, including the cotton curtains. Above: A bird's eye view of the shared courtyard. Above: Dinner outside tonight? Like the look of brick?
