Project Overview

The name of this project is "Quartet", which is derived from the preferences of each family member. And the theme is modern luxury style. Under the premise of respecting each member of the family, the master bedroom and second bedrooms are given neo-classical, Scandinavian, and industrial style elements to highlight the user’s personalities and preferences while creating a modern style. The master bedroom presents a neo-classical style with light-colored trims and wallboards. In contrast to the ornate decorations, the designer used a restrained and minimalist design to create a mature image. On the other hand, the second bedroom omits unnecessary lines and uses white throughout the entire space. And the design of wooden louvers allows sunlight into the house, creating a fresh and bright Scandinavian style. Another second bedroom has a dark color tone with an industrial e-sport style. The ceiling is equipped with RGB lighting strips that change the color temperature to create an ambiance, while the faux brick wall decoration provides a rugged, masculine aesthetic. Overall, the project is based on a modern luxury style with other elements in different areas to express the diversity of colors and styles. The result is a variety of spaces with their themes and extensions.

Project Brief

In the public area, neo-classical, Scandinavian, and industrial elements are integrated into the framework of modern luxury style. Multiple elements co-exist with each other to create a rich visual experience. Then, the elements are extended to the private area to amplify or subdue their uniqueness to form a complete and minimalist style. For example, the neoclassical trim in the master bedroom, the Scandinavian monochrome in the second bedroom, and the dark industrial style with minimalist ironwork in another second bedroom. In addition, the designer took beams and columns, and flooring of different colors as a reminder of the transition between the dining room and living room. The ceiling with lines and gray scales lengthens the visual effect and expands the sense of space through the mirror reflection so that users do not feel oppressed under the beams and columns. As for the wooden grille, the color flash can attract people's attention, and create surprise, but not abruptly. The designer made the colors on-site and then decided the position of the color break according to the lighting, pursuing color versatility yet not losing harmony. Last but not least, the designer used art paint on the main wall of the living room to show exquisite hand painting. Unlike the irregular pattern of marble, the designer painted the white façade with landscape paintings to instil a sense of expansiveness in the public area, giving people relaxation and ease.

Project Need

The public area is open plan, and the façade is installed with Scandinavian-style gray-blue wooden grilles. In certain parts, the grilles are color flashed to show the diversity and vividness. On the side, the TV walls and ceilings are extended with "lines" and "surfaces" to make the space more vibrant and invisibly emphasize its spaciousness. The main wall of the living room is painted with art paint to present the texture of marble. At the same time, the designer used hand-painting to transcript the landscape painting-like texture, elevating the dull façade into a work of art. As for the TV cabinet, the contrast between black and white creates a visual impact and the height difference adds diversity to transmute the different Scandinavian styles. On the other hand, the dressing table in the master bedroom is concealed so as not to interfere with the route. When not in use, it is completely concealed by panels, forming a symmetry with the bathroom and preserving its integrity.

Design Challenge

The project was planned from the pre-sale stage and faced the challenges of epidemic and shortage of labor and materials during the construction period. At the same time, the project had to be completed within four months as requested by the client, thus the design team strived for quality in all phases. Furthermore, the height difference between the original drawing and the actual space was more than 10 centimetres and the beams and columns were even lower than in the original setting. The designer installed mirrors on the façade or ceiling or adopted lines to make the visual effect extended and elongated. Finally, the designer added a grayscale to enhance the texture and reduce the feeling of oppression.


The living room and study room are in an open plan with floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize the advantages of ventilation and lighting. In this way, the building materials can be reduced and the natural scenery can be integrated into the design. In addition, the public area is well-lit to reduce electricity consumption. On the other hand, the cabinets are certified green building materials with low pollution and can be reused, reduced, and recycled. Fenix panels use natural lignin and reduce the phenol content in the resin by 50%. It is more environmentally friendly, harmless to the human body, and effectively reduces carbon emissions, energy consumption, and water consumption during manufacturing, which is in line with sustainable development values. Lastly, eco-friendly art paint is a combination of functional and decorative paint. It is wrinkle-free, wear-resistant, and have a longer service life, and does not require polluting adhesives. In addition to low maintenance costs and ease of secondary decoration, the application process does not produce waste materials, and the unused paint can be recycled and reused.

Open to all international projects this award celebrates innovative and creative building interiors, with consideration given to space creation and planning, furnishings, finishes, aesthetic presentation and functionality. Consideration also given to space allocation, traffic flow, building services, lighting, fixtures, flooring, colours, furnishings and surface finishes.
