Therefore, I try to make every detail refinement to meet with the client lifestyle. For example, there are a lot of customized in the house, such as doggie doors were open in the walls of the house, so the doggie ( the client think that the doggie is one of the member of their family) could go thru each door and access to any rooms that it like. In the restroom, I designed a nice functional low wall (steel as a base structure combine with walnut wood) beside the toilet which combined 3-4 functions in one structure. For example, spaces to store the toilet paper and toilet brush. There is a little interesting of the storage space of toilet brush, we built drainage to avoid water will not drip down to the floor. The design of Da An H House also considered the height of the client, so that they do not need to bend down to get the things they need. Above we only mentioned part of the refinement, we could not mentioned all of them in a small paragraph, for more information, please feel free to visit our website in http://www.herzudesign.com/ .. FS: Where there any other designs and/or designers that helped the influence the design of your work?
