业主需求 | Owner requirements
Designers love old objects because they have a sense of precipitation. The hostess likes the modern style with black and white. But life should not be constrained by fixed patterns. The owner is a post-90s couple. This house is their transition house for nearly five or six years. The couple hope that the kitchen storage space is sufficient to facilitate daily work. It is best to have a workbench. The bedroom can accommodate larger storage for clothes and hats. No matter what occupation you are in, you need a space to rest and relax. This is your exclusive space. Here, you can really calm down to accompany your family, you can organize your mood, and you can feel tenderness and nourishment.
01.玄关 | Hallway
The storage system at the entrance hallway hides the storage of miscellaneous items and the geometric space of the original apartment. It can also be used as a daily workbench.

02.厨房&餐厅 | Kitchen & Dining Room
The owner and his wife love cooking. They like to drink tea and coffee. So they hope that the kitchen has enough storage space to put away the kitchen utensils, tableware, tea cups, etc. bought from all over the world. The original kitchen area is only 4m2. We will use the channel overlap function to create a brand-new dining and kitchen space.

03.客厅 | Living Room
We uniformly use artistic paint for the walls and ceilings of the entire space to make the sight more open and avoid depression. The entire balcony faces the west and is sunny in the evening. We use the slightly darker tone and texture of the wall to soften the light to reduce the diffuse reflection of sunlight in the space.

We made a 35cm height for the indoor balcony to increase the functionality and practicality. When more friends visit, it can be used as a stool to meet guests, or as a platform next to the floor-to-ceiling windows to enjoy the sunset.

04.卧室 | Bedroom
We use a very narrow frame door, in a small space, greatly weakened the door line. We hide the skirting in the whole house, which can also make up for the shortcomings of insufficient floor height.

Considering that the bay window cannot be removed and the bedroom area is limited, we interspersed the bay window in the master bedroom into a dressing table and storage display countertop, and maximized the use of the bay window.

05.多功能区 | Multifunctional Area
We use the second bedroom as a temporary recreational space at home. By using the non-removable bay window to connect the grounding platform, we designed a whole wall storage cabinet to increase the frequency and practicality of the space. When a friend is visiting, everyone can also sit on the stairs and chat.

The couple expect to have a baby in 2 years. So the second bedroom can be turned into a resting space for the nanny to take care of the baby. The interactive nature of the steps also allows friends who are watching the baby to sit around here.

06.卫生间 | Bathroom
Since the bathroom is surrounded by load-bearing walls, we connect the living balcony with it to create a space integrating housekeeping, washing, and showering. We use three linkage slides to divide the space between dry and wet. After washing, the owner can complete a series of actions such as washing, drying and folding.
07.灯光 | Lighting
Lighting is also the focus of this project. We use no main light design throughout the house. We use Bluetooth to control the lights of the whole house, which can cater to the usage in the home. At the same time, using Bluetooth can switch various modes at will.

The floor lamp in the living room is a middle-aged Italian lamp purchased from a buyer’s store in Beijing. It is more like an installation art than lighting. The squares are more like windows in buildings, full of vitality and curiosity.
