Appreciation towards Atelier D+Y (contact: dh.guo@qq.com) for providing the following description:


As the owner of this 70m2 apartment is a newly-married couple who are very fond of cooking, the concept of an open living dining kitchen was thus adopted to create a “private kitchen” for the couple exclusively.

一片玻璃隔断将玄关限定出来,客厅、餐厅、玄关相互渗透。餐厨与客厅、玄关混合形成的L形空间,容纳二人世界的烹饪、就餐、游戏 、会客等多样化活动。空间中的一片木质吊顶结合书架洞墙串联空间,形成框景画面。

▼室内空间形成概念及过程,the design concept and process

The vestibule is separated by a glass partition. The living room, dining room and vestibule are mutually connected. In the L-type space formed by the integration of kitchen, living room and vestibule, the couple can do many things such as cooking, playing games, having dinner or receiving guests, etc.. A wooden ceiling in the space further combines the bookshelf and the wall to connect the whole space, forming an effect of enframed scenery.

In the open LDK space, the wooden ceiling and bookshelf are integrated together. With the alternating “solid” and “hollow” bookshelf arrangement, the cabinet doors opens along “hollow part” with a worktable embedded in between.

The dining room was moved into the living-room area for more natural light.

The balcony is a washing area where the utensils are properly covered by bamboo curtains and white cobblestones are adopted surrounding the anti-corrosion floor, thus making the area not only to fulfill the basic demands for washing, drying and water permeation while preserving vivid light and shadow under the curtain.

The wall of original kitchen was removed to solve the problem of dim and closed feeling in the deep kitchen area, and an open kitchen with a bar was built for indirect daylighting.

The square shape is the motif of the secondary bedroom. For the wardrobe sliding door, the air outlet and the bookshelf, the square shape of different sizes are combined together to create a quiet rest space.

The white steel window and the corrugated glass are applied to distinguish the dry and wet areas of the bathroom, in which, the two log boards in the dry area constitute the tabletop and the storage space.
