Project Overview

The project is a 112.3 square meters pre-owned apartment renovation, with 2 bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, an indoor garden, and 2 bathrooms. The designer replans the space to meet the client's living needs and to realize all the client's living ideals. Firstly, the designer plans the public area in an open plan and forms the indoor garden in its center. The glass-enclosed corner becomes a gardening area for the client to enjoy. At the same time, the transparent partition brings a lush garden view to the interior. Next, the designer creates a dining table, reading area, and sofa area according to the working and living habits. The open plan weakens the boundaries of the area, allowing more flexibility in life, and a spacious and comfortable space for WFH during the epidemic. The space is customized for the client in terms of aesthetics, functionality, and convenience of living. The height of the gas stove and countertop, the configuration of the dining room seating and tatami area, and the selection of the bathtub are all customized for the client. These furnishings look good and are ergonomic, making life more pleasant.

Project Brief

The name of the project "Inner Vastness " is inspired by Jules Spervielle's L'escaller “Inner vastness, blue leaping in the space, each tree inside, growing towards the end of the palm tree, searching for its own soul.” The designer believes that the vibrancy in the space can coexist with life. The pace of life, preferences, color, light source, etc., under the clever dialogue of light and dark echo and contrast, a touch of blue, a few clusters of green, paved with elegant beige and mauve to form the face of life. The vastness means that the user experience of the space is enhanced after design and planning. The effect of enlargement and extension can be realized visually, in terms of user experience and mind, and the beauty of life is thus born.

Project Need

The foyer is decorated with light beige color, and then the same color tone is extended to the flooring, TV wall, multi-functional table, and reading lounge. At the same time, the designer decorates the end of the open space in the public area with the client's favorite vista wall, adding a touch of vivid color to the elegant space. The central part of the public area has an indoor garden as the core. The glass screen separates the public area from the gardening space and allows for the ingenious introduction of natural light from the interior for planting. Moreover, in the open plan space, in addition to the spaciousness and practicality, the designer emphasizes ventilation and lighting. The designer carefully evaluates the brightness of light in the space and brings light and greenery into the room through the indoor garden. Secondly, the designer eliminated the unidirectional convective wind direction of the long space through the exhaust system and direct the natural wind to all corners of the space. At the same time, the designer visualizes the flow of the interior through curved lines. Staying in a space where natural light and wind flow smoothly, even if people stay at home all day, they will not feel bored, but rather like having their little universe.

Design Challenge

The site is humid and therefore requires a special base paint and a ventilation system to maintain the best balance of humidity and dryness. In this way, the quality of living can be improved and the walls and furniture in the space are less prone to damage. The next thing is to overcome the crosses in the ceilings of the public area. Considering the height of the client and not wanting to reduce the height of the space to decorate the beams, the designer supplements the curved trim with elegant colors to echo the walls and furnishings to form a harmonious and extended aesthetic while eliminating the abruptness and oppressiveness of the cross beams.


The project combines greenery and interior design. An interior garden is a tranquil place, and its glass screen eliminates the boundaries of different areas. With the spacious configuration, the space has plenty of natural light and can therefore be left completely unlit during the daytime to save electricity for lighting. In addition, F1 low formaldehyde paints, such as art paint and waterproof base paint, are used in the space to meet the aesthetic and functional requirements while protecting the health of the occupants and the environment to achieve the goal of sustainability. Plants can purify the space, and an exhaust system is installed to balance the airflow. After moving in, people can feel the flow of light and the convection of air at the same time. Between light and dark, movement and stillness, the space re-invigorates the senses with relaxation from the inside out.
