The Dragon Lake at the Feature of 144 Gorgeous Homes Around the Globe by Houzz

Remodeling and Home Design

The Dragon Lake is picked by the editorial team of Houzz as part of the 144 Gorgeous Homes Around the Globe!

Overlooking a scenic golf course in Huadu district in Guangzhou, the 15,000-sq. ft. Dragon Lake house embodies a ‘less is more’ design approach, blending simplicity with sophistication, luxury with nature and comfort, while celebrating a mix of the east and west.

At first glance, the design is minimalist and open, giving it a homely and relaxing ambience, but dig deeper, and one can find the owner and his partner’s personality and sophisticated tastes stamped on it. Simplicity and coziness don’t have to equate to monotony, as the inhabitants’ soul and stories are manifested in the house’s diverse cultural themes and complexity, which are realised within the boundaries of the minimalist design. The space is also versatile and can grow and evolve to the owners’ needs and experiences.

By using sleek furniture with simple lines, and opting for a colour palette of earth tones, the house has a minimalist style. This provides a soothing and cozy environment for the owner to relax, which is particularly important as he spends a lot of time traveling and works in the fashion industry, which can be stressful. The minimalist design also provides a platform for the owner to showcase his momentos and treasured items, adding a personal and familiar touch to the house, creating a cozy ambience, which can help the owner unwind.
To match with the owner’s taste for high design, many design-led and luxurious furniture pieces, such as the set of sofa seats ‘Extrasoft’ used in the basement facing the swimming pool designed by Piero Lissoni. The seats come in a variety of different colours and materials, which go well with each other and the swimming pool, creating a soothing ambience. The seats are also versatile as they can be rearranged in infinite ways, suiting different needs. Another design-led piece is the curved Maxalto CRONO sofa in the master bedroom designed by Antonio Citterio. Not only is the curve design fashion forward, its colour matches the room’s décor and exudes a comfy feel, perfect for the owner and his partner to relax on. This relaxing theme extends to the AV room, where you can find two lounge chairs by Eames with a stylish, sleek and comfy design, for the owner, his partner or guests to lay back and enjoy a good movie.
