“Home is where the heart is.” After traveling around the world and taking countless pictures of various human cultures and sceneries, a photographer couple finally found their perfect home. This home, surrounded by mountains and water, is the most beautiful place they have ever witnessed.

Located by the Gin Lon Lake, Xizhi, “A Bright Spot in the Mountains” is only a window away from nature. This residence, occupied by two adults, a child, and their pets, features breathtaking mountain views outside its French windows. Such views were the main reason why its adult occupants decided to settle here. They made it their dream to create a living space that is slightly “loft,” light industry-like, and daily life-oriented.

To improve the small and dim three-bedroom, two-living room, and two-bathroom space, the designer moved the central hallway near windows, drawing sunlight into the center of the living room. Large Japanese-style wooden windows were installed in the study room for a clearer view and to allow sunlight and air to extend from the living room all the way to the master bedroom, ensuring that the hallway is put to full use and easier to walk in. A viewing window was added to the originally dark children’s room, drawing sunlight and sparking fun interactions between the parents and child.

“Loft living” sometimes forces a compromise between bohemian charm and individual privacy. The informal plan, ample natural light, and uninterrupted views of an open loft are typically at odds with the modern family's desire for private space and distinct bedrooms.
