BUNGALOW project

Thinking about the effect of other spaces to dining room
Elements necessary to design dining room.
The purpose to design dining room: relaxing, comfortable, happiness. It is like a nest, each family’s member have a good time to enjoy foods.

Process to design dining room
First,thinking about relationship of dining room to other spaces: living room, kitchen
Second, organize space to set up furniture (dining table, sideboard, hutch...)
Third, create the shape for furniture to fit with dining room
space. Thinking about the style, materials, and the color finishing
Analyze space dining room space function to create the shape for dining table.
Make decision to set up sideboard and hutch.
The dining room space a little bit small, but we need to set up an table with 6 chairs, sideboard, and hutch. So I think the table and chair need to design under frame (lack solid surface) that better to feel that the space it's not narrow.
Furniture design process
The table style, sideboard, hutch much to match with the living room , kitchen furniture style ( style combination)

CONCEPT: UNITY-Linear elements unify the dining room with the whole house

In the center of the house as a “nest,” this dining room follows both Bachelard’s concept of universality in form and function and Clark’s connection of the living space to nature. 
With active details and an eye toward accessories and textiles, the design brings this early nineteenth century bungalow into the current age.  Linear elements connect the space together, and with the variety inherent in the furniture and accessories introduced, the unity of the dining room remains as the experiential focus of the space.  The house becomes enlivened by the introduction of this nest for eating.
