Project Description

The designer comes up with a delicate layout and utilizes every inch of the space, characterizing each section with its own flare, therefore shows the versatility. The warmth of the lightings brings coziness in this cool tone space, and the unique design also lightens up the vibe. The customized screens with hallow-craved keep the transparency while parting sections, which enriches the visual layers. Through the design, the space invites all the visitors to let their imaginations run wild in a welcoming way.

The dark color of the walls and floor make the narrow entry sleek yet uncrowded, and the use of large mirror visually widens the space. Alongside the hidden cabinets, the designer shows great skills for space management. The public area is an open-plain layout, with the see-through screens stands ajar between the living room and the dining room. The sun shines through the French window and cast shadows through the craved-outs. The oddly-shaped shadows and the beam dance around the space throughout the day, becoming the most dazzling decoration of the space.
