Nature, art deco and Chinese heritage converge in this modern Suzhou villa
Weaving together tradition and modernity, nature and the manmade world, Villa Homespun Philosophy is the brainchild of Taiwan-based practice T.K. Chu Design and local developer China Railway Construction Real Estate. This modern Suzhou villa’s architecture and interior design draw on Chinese heritage and the idyllic city’s history and culture, distilling their essence into a modern domestic space that feels contemporary, richly layered and luxurious.
The house is situated a stone’s throw from the city’s World Heritage Site, the Humble Administrator’s Garden, a green expanse of miniature landscapes and water features. Taking their cues from this context, the designers composed a villa that ‘pays tribute to the Chinese traditional garden culture’.
