In the heart of Kunming, China’s ecological paradise, Kiki Archi unveiled a two-story holiday house masterpiece in 2023.
Set against Kunming’s renowned golf resort backdrop, “House Rooted in the Soil” elegantly blends modern design with nature, promising warmth in winters and a refreshing cool in summers, thanks to its unique soil-based construction. Overlooking serene forests and cherry trees, this residence redefines luxury, making it a magnet for nature and golf lovers alike.
This modern townhouse located in Shenzhen, China was once a colonial-style home, but after a renovation by KiKi ARCHi, it has been transformed into a modern functional Breathing House.
The designer focused on three keywords of light, air, and flow to integrate the indoor and outdoor spaces continuously. The exterior of the house has been changed dramatically to create a modern and airy façade, allowing for privacy but also breathability. The interior materials and decoration were chosen to bring a comfortable living experience and the result is a home that brings many changes to the family’s life, providing more suitable places for them to relax.
Kiki ARCHi has crafted a stunning single-family house in Beijing, China, that combines traditional and contemporary elements. The project, named Classic Meets Modern, features the owner’s collection of Golden Nanmu (Phoebe zhennan) wood furniture, which is a popular architectural and furniture material for the imperial family in Ming and Qing dynasties, and was used in the famous Forbidden City.
With the help of the designer’s expertise, the house has been replanned and adjusted to incorporate the owner’s collection into a modern-style home that perfectly balances space and display design. The three colors of black, white, and gray are used in large quantities, corresponding to the scenes of ‘traditional’, ‘modern’, and ‘transition’ respectively. Visitors to the house can experience a sense of ritual and inclusiveness while being surrounded by the beauty of Beijing.
