Project Overview

This is a five-story home with an elevator running through all floors. The first, second, and fifth floors are public spaces, while the third and fourth floors are private sitting areas. The design is based on the owner's preferences and functional needs, providing appropriate services for their daily life. Considering the owner's family of five, it was important to create spacious public spaces for family interaction and communication, as well as separate spaces for each family member. The elevator creates a barrier-free living environment, making it easier for all family members to move around.

Project Brief

The house’s design reflects the family's preferences and passions. The garage on the first floor has a stone end wall and bicycles, catering to the man's love for sports. The common area on the same floor has floor-to-ceiling mirrors for the hostess's daily activities. The second floor, serving as the family's living space, features curved elements in the ceiling and wall design, representing the family's desire for travel and relaxation. The children's room is inspired by building blocks, rock climbing, and caves, with stylized furniture creating a playful space. The designer of the residence has carefully planned it to provide the best living experience for a family of five. The open garage is perfect for the man to store his sporting goods, while the first-floor common area is multi-functional and designed for the woman to play musical instruments and practice yoga. The spacious second floor integrates the living room and kitchen area, providing ample space for the family to enjoy comfortable activities together. The children's room is equipped with interesting furniture that encourages fun, learning, and creativity.

Project Need

The family has a passion for traveling and desires a spontaneous and relaxed lifestyle. To achieve this, the designer used curved shapes, stone patterns, and travel souvenirs to incorporate the owner's travel memories and scenery into the space. Additionally, some furniture and ornaments from the old house were included in the new residence. This allowed the old and new elements to blend together, symbolizing the continuity of cherished memories.

Design Challenge

This project is based on the modern minimalist style, but it adds details and ingenuity. The design achieves this by using cutting lines, applying curved elements, and incorporating differences in materials and colors. This breaks away from the common minimalist design, allowing the seemingly simple space to contain rich layers. Moreover, the designer adheres to the concept of "design is to be used, not just to express an aesthetic pattern". As a result, they skillfully combine practical functional facilities with aesthetics. This rationalizes the structure and usability of the space, rather than just being catalyzed by art.


As designers, we believe that every design project should prioritize social responsibility. In this project, we have made a conscious effort to use over 70% green building materials. These materials include non-toxic eco-art paints, zero-formaldehyde cabinets, power-saving LED lights, and super-resistant wooden floors. Our goal is not only to create a comfortable, healthy, and beautiful living environment for our clients but also to leave a sustainable world for future generations.
