Project Brief

As a result, an intricate and detailed planning process has been meticulously executed to create a harmonious blend of both the outdoor garden space and the indoor layout and movement arrangements, ensuring a captivating and delightful experience for both residents and guests alike. The floor’s central area features a concave layout and is enclosed by floor-to-ceiling glass windows, allowing for natural light and air to flow throughout the space freely. This central location has been designed as a garden, inviting natural greenery into the room through the windows. This creates a cozy and nature-inspired atmosphere that enhances the beauty of the space.

Project Need

In order to address the issue of direct sunlight from the east and west, a semi-permeable aluminum wood grille has been added to the upper edge of the windows. This solution not only mitigates direct sunlight but also creates beautiful light and shadow effects throughout the indoor space. Also, in order to accommodate multiple individuals, the team thoughtfully and meticulously designed an open layout that seamlessly incorporates a double living room, ultimately connecting the shared living room, living room, and kitchen space. This masterful design maximizes space efficiency, an essential element for a harmonious living environment. On the other hand, the staircase, serving as a vital part of the layout and connecting the upper and lower floors, is crafted from solid wood and echoes the natural beauty of the outdoor garden elements. The meandering curves and skeletonized step design cleverly add a natural and soft feel to the cold and stable space, providing a sense of comfort and warmth.

Design Challenge

In the shared living area, the flooring is boldly paved with black antique granite, expertly echoing the granite and sip stone elements of the building's exterior. This bold design choice extends the sense of space, creating a seamless transition from the outside in. In the private area, the main material for furniture and flooring is steel-brushed teak. The use of this material adds a touch of warmth and coziness to the open space, creating a welcoming and inviting atmosphere. The attention to detail and thoughtful design choices throughout the space are a testament to the skill and expertise of the team. The residential space is designed with two stories, with the bedrooms strategically positioned at both ends of the lower level. Each of these bedrooms boasts its own private bathroom, ensuring unparalleled privacy and excellent lighting. The public activity areas are kept separate from the bedrooms, thereby guaranteeing a peaceful and tranquil environment. The upper level offers additional guest bedrooms that come complete with independent bathrooms, as well as a bar area. This arrangement provides guests with a comfortable sitting space where they can relax and unwind.


This project prioritizes environmental protection by utilizing sustainable measures and materials to promote "Habitat Health," "Eco-Health," "People Health," and "Global Sustainability." The goal is for residents to live in a healthy and secure environment. The design includes large floor-to-ceiling windows and energy-saving LED lights to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. Moreover, a rainwater recycling system is planned for the outdoor garden pool. The recycled rainwater will be automatically pumped by a motor and connected to the landscaping water wall. The water from the water wall will then flow back into the pool, forming a cycle that offers an environmentally friendly, aesthetically pleasing, and dynamic water feature design.
