Realistic Utopia
Invited by the Chinese space design and renovation TV program“Change your life”, TOPOS DESIGN CLANS designed an unique home art studio,which is an artland making life better.
The site is a rental apartment with 80m2, located in downtown Shanghai. The designers believe in the philosophy of a realistic Utopia, they create good in the real world. It is a space design and renovation about life and art, and also a prototype study of new lifestyle.
Neither Life Nor Art
Seven is a painter, Jackie is his wife.
The painting space occupied every corners in the apartment, with full of chaos and dangers.
Space as Canvas, Life as Color
Thinking out of the box, we suppose the new living room is an unusual type of space , which is a container of life and art.
In the corner space beside the entrance, there is a group of storage cabinets. we categorized drawing tools in different cabinets according to their sizes and uses. Among the cabinets, there hides a movable partition, which can be a display wall for art.
The balcony becomes a mini full functional life center with plenty of sunlight. There are several types of storage cabinets on the both sides of the new studio. And, we customized a multi-functional large table, which is not only for handcrafting, but also for dinner parties.
In the center of this apartment, there is a golden kennel for two dogs.
Private rooms are the essential part of the fundamental life, better with minimal forms to present.

What’s unique about it

The new living room is a container of life and art. In terms of colors, it is temperately organized with simple black and white. The grey ceramic tiles are used for the floor coverings, which are easy to be cleaned, and the original texture feels raw but real.
The luminous ceiling covered with 3 pieces of full-length PVC membrane provides 3 types of lighting modes, respectively, for painting, exhibition and living.
In the corner space beside the entrance, there is a group of storage cabinets. We categorized drawing tools in different cabinets according to their sizes and uses. Among the cabinets, there hides a movable partition with two-meter width, which can be a display wall for art.
There are several types of storage cabinets on the both sides of the new studio: the peg board for model kits, the bookcase below the window, and the corner cabinets for large paintings.
On the right side of the entryway,there is a small golden niche, which is for the keys and the dog chains. On the other side, there is a shoe cabinet, which can be pulled out.
In the center of this apartment, there is a golden kennel for two dogs. It has different sizes of embedded space, not just for the two puppies ’living, but also for placing art installations. The corridor continues using the golden plates, which becomes an extension of the gallery. There are three hidden doors in this folding corridor, covering three colorful private rooms.
