Project Overview

The project is a 19-year-old pre-owned apartment with 122.3 square meters and four rooms, a living room, a dining room, and two bathrooms. The designer replanned the layout, using the concept of a space capsule, and used curved lines to outline the areas to create a new look for the old apartment.

Project Brief

The flow of love reverberates through the space. Happiness comes from the warmth and the intention of pursuing comfort. The designer was attracted by the sincere love between the two clients and translated this story of tolerance and love through interior design. The designer hand-painted the walls with art paint to bring out the loving hues. Black baking glass serves as a guard door for the wine glasses on the side of the center island, while green baking glass serves as a guest bathroom partition wall echoing Moroccan-style tiles. The Caribbean collection by American graphic designer David Carson in collaboration with Spanish tile manufacturer CAS was applied in the foyer, with blue sea creatures on a white tile background. Inside, a corner of the living room is covered with green and white tiles, with fresh floral patterns that tempt people to explore. In the kitchen, blue cabinets with gold and white tiles showcase a touch of luxury. On the other side, the door of the yoga room and reading room is made of iron with semi-transparent glass for light and ventilation. Light and ventilation are well-planned in this space. When the light falls, the scene is so vivid.

Project Innovation/Need

The project focuses on the needs of people and the lifestyle of pet cats. The designer simplified the original guest bathroom into a restroom with beautiful North African Moroccan floor tiles, and the extra space became a bathroom for the cats (where the cat litter box is placed). A small archway for cats was also created on the wall of the master bedroom. The octagonal window in the living room was decorated with green and white tiles and a cat tree for the cats to enjoy. As for the planning for the people, in response to the humidity and rain in Taiwan, the interior walls of the living room, master bedroom, and guest bedroom were painted with moisture and heatproof base paint to reduce the risk of moisture in the old apartment. On the other side, the master bedroom was reduced in size to allow for a wider bathroom space to accommodate a bathtub and double sinks. Moreover, the designer separated the original piano room into a yoga room and a reading room, and the small part of the space freed up was combined with the entrance to create a shoe closet and a storage room. The interior was curved to create the look of the capsule and the special shape of the foyer, studio, and master bedroom walls.

Design Challenge

The challenge of the project is to create a diverse look with the concept of a space capsule. To avoid the feeling of confinement caused by the shape of the capsule, some of the compartments were connected by the glass and with the flow of light, the atmosphere becomes warmer and more harmonious.


The project site is well-lit by natural light, and the designer brought as much natural light into the interior as possible. In this way, most of the space does not need to be lit by artificial lighting at all during the day, which contributes to sustainability and carbon reduction in the long run. The second was to install a whole-house dehumidification system in the ceiling. Automatic dehumidification is important for human health and the maintenance of building materials and furniture. Reducing the frequency of hardware replacement is a crucial part of environmental protection. In addition, the designer also paid equal attention to ventilation. The project installed a whole-house air purification system in the ceiling, which takes positive and negative air pressure to create a flow of fresh air from the living room to each space and then discharges it to achieve a clean air circulation effect.
