W.Design has recently unveiled the interior design for the new COFCO Ruifu residence in Beijing
The high-end luxury mansion is a courtyard villa whose interior design has been inspired by classical Chinese gardens. W.Design were asked to complete the interior decoration and furnishing of both the residence and the representative building complex, creating the atmosphere found in a northern-Chinese mansion.
A three halls design concept was used for the atrium, with the living room acting as an extension of the courtyard on the first floor. Marble and timber elements are utilised to create a harmonious feeling throughout. A spiral staircase moves from the first floor up to the second, where the master and twin bedrooms are located. Landscape paintings and colourful furniture are added to create dynamic focal points in each.
The staircase continues down to the basement where a vertical library has been conceived by the architect. A pond mirrors the book collection to create reflections and encourage relaxation. Continuity is achieved between in the indoor and outdoor space by the use of natural materials. Black stones and wood are used in conjunction with metallic copper finishes against white and grey.
