项目定位|Project Orientation


This project is a all-furnished apartment which redesigned from three bedrooms to two bedrooms in 135 square meters. The problem of original apartment: The kitchen and washroom are too small. To a family that have more than one child, the zoning of dining room and living room is too independent. The compound and transparent of different area are necessary so that the parent can take care of and interact with their children.

Connecting the northern room with kitchen in order to build an open kitchen and dining room, so that parents can take care of their babies while cooking. At the same time, the dining table can also be a place to work.

Abandoning the traditional TV background and changing the sofa area in living room to a place for reading so that parents can read together with their children. Because of the nature of job, the designer set the workshop in living room for interacting with children.

Enlarging the area of washroom and adding a bathtub for daily use.



As the Party A and Party B of this project, I design this apartment for individual need and, most importantly, for the interaction of adulthood anf children. So I choose to break the traditional design of an apartment for a family. In addition, I update the function of this space to satisfy my wife’s interest in cooking and baking.
