Project Brief

The project is deeply inspired by the Japanese concept of simplicity, which is then fused with the designer's unparalleled creativity in spatial design. With a masterful play of lines, light, shadows, and natural scenery, the design creates a breathtakingly diverse and captivating spatial experience that exudes a remarkable sense of comfort and freedom. The end result is a symphony of architectural ingenuity that stimulates the senses and delights the soul.

Project Innovation/Need

The design team has created a warm and inviting living space that exudes comfort and elegance. By incorporating warm textures, soft colors, and ample natural light, they have successfully achieved a warm and comfortable ambiance. The open layout of the space creates a spacious and uncluttered environment that is perfect for relaxation. To add to the brightness and airiness of the space, they have used square grille sliding doors to separate each area, which cleverly integrates into the overall design. This residence is the epitome of comfort and tranquility, providing a perfect retreat for rejuvenation.

Design Challenge

When it comes to creating a spatial design, it's crucial to strike a balance between style and functionality. To ensure that residents have the best possible experience, it's essential to focus on their needs and create a layout that aligns with their daily routines. This means that each area of the space should have multiple purposes and serve a variety of functions. By taking a minimalist approach to design, it's possible to enhance both the aesthetics and functionality of the space, creating an environment that is both attractive and practical.


This housing project aims to create a beautiful living space with innovative design while prioritizing environmentally friendly green design. By promoting "green thinking" and returning the space to its natural state, the project strives for sustainable development. The design includes window openings, grille design, and power-saving LED lights, which enhance the quality of living while leaving a sustainable world for future generations. The positioning of the windows in this design is impeccable. The sliding grille door that serves as an interior partition only adds to the aesthetic appeal of the space. The ample natural light that floods the room creates a refreshing ambiance that promotes healthy living. The ventilation is top-notch, ensuring that the air quality is always optimal. This design is a perfect blend of modern-day living and nature. The energy-saving LED lights employed in this space are a game-changer. They not only help to reduce power consumption but also promote carbon reduction, making it an eco-friendly option.
