In a common multi-family residential space, people often encounter such issues as large beams and imbalanced structures. The designer tries to turn these defects of the apartment into unique strengths in the most simple and natural way. By converting materials and introducing sunlight, it upgrades the quality and inner spirit of life in this space.
For the public sphere, the designer rearranges the fragmented space and focus on a long table for family gathering and bonding. Because the beam is low and unchangeable, to relieve the pressure caused by the beam,
the designer connects and extends the beam and ceilings obliquely with curves. Both sides of the beam are covered with large zebra wood with titanium-plated metal at the bottom to present natural and exquisite texture, turning the beam into a focus of the apartment.
The master bedroom is divided into a working area and sleeping area through the use of grilles. The bed faces a large window. The gaps and directions of the grilles are based on the angles of sunshine. The light and shadow in the space change beautifully with the sun.
