Anything but ordinary

Yugen House by Studio Gabriel Bordin

Yugen, an important thought of conventional Japanese aesthetics, is an expression of depth, of what are unable to be translated, of the incomprehensible and summary that passes from philosophy to art.

By the distinction of shadow with the intervals of light created by the home windows and the illuminated area of the kitchen area, by means of the concealed landscape that inevitably reveals itself, Casa Yugen will make a non-verbal invitation to the area in which one particular can glimpse the beauty of the mystery of the universe and our human ailment. At the entrance, the curved wall of the entrance corridor, in shape and tone, generates an infinite “plane” on the concave side, which hides the landscape ahead of revealing it.

In approach or when seen from inside the environment, it creates a central axis that unfolds the social spot without corners, in an natural and organic way. The water mirror in front of the very long home windows demonstrates the macro bonsai that seem to float and the day sky. The texture and pure light range markedly, developing a new landscape with textures of sun and water during the days. Spaces interact in all corners of the ‘L’ plan. The abnormal way in which André Gippi’s Ramona armchair was positioned, communicates with the dwelling home, though the residing room opens on to the anteroom and the kitchen/eating room.

The darkish partitions that embrace the environment frame the lighted windows, the portray by Rubens Oestroem, the kitchen, the furniture, the decoration, the floor and the ceiling, “the sky and the earth”. The chiaroscuro is a source that plays with the concept of ‘Yugen’, in which factors are highlighted, concealed and mimicked on the surfaces, in a way that performs with the protagonism of the pieces in the residing area the couch and coffee desk merge with the rug that merges into the floor. The dim bookcase, in the way it is composed, mimics the horizon of the opposite wall, with overturned books, “hidden knowledge”, and the h2o that is also existing in the bar and in the function ‘Ponta do Coral I’ by Alessandro Gruetzmacher.

The ‘false rubber tree’ plant, proportionately significant for an inner space, is effective as a physical and visible landmark among the living home and the kitchen. The alternative of massive-structure vegetation also performs with scales. In a concept often adopted by the architect in which the natural and the created environment, the crops with the perspective from the window, the normal light and that of the luminaires should really mutually enrich just about every other. The kitchen, with a purist off white and white history, with translucent shelf lighting, evokes gentle from home windows it does not have. This is punctuated with the Nile Quartz island, organic and darkish as a monolith that has been appropriated by the household and takes on a functionality. In it are the deca vat and drying rack that seem to be to have been sculpted in the quantity.
