There are four main challenge for this project.
Firstly, the apartment is a combined unit, as a whole space is incomplete and concave. The two main columns become obviously in the middle of the room. To weaken the sever visual obstacle, we design a foyer and reading area in the middle and create a circled movement in the space. (Stroll).
Considering both hill and city view are the second challenge. Unlike normal interior design dividing into two, we opening up the entire space. And make light, air, and view could flow through all space.(View).
Thirdly, finding proper positions for personal collections and hide massive sundries. At the end of each spaces has personal art collections which make art become a part of daily life and enjoy it. By using invisible door, hide massive sundries into walls.(Stay).
Final challenge is to coordinate architectural appearance and inner space to establish the east culture atmosphere. Using the same material as architectural appearance, but polish or paint the material to make it more delicate and suitable for inner usage. Meanwhile, outer environment become the extension of the inner space and keep a low profile of orient landscape taste. (Tour).
