LZArchitects was commissioned by the TV program of “Good Life” at Dragon TV to renovate a two-bedroom, one-bedroom home in Donggang New Village in Suzhou City. A family of six people lived in 68m2. With the birth of three children, the living space of parents and the elderly became tense. Architects need to create a comfortable and modern living space for them within a month.
The room is decorated with white and natural wood to create a quiet and warm atmosphere. The use of luminous film and wood veneer ceilings makes the entrance bright and spacious.
