A dwelling place becomes a home for creation of versatile functionalities based on living elements. Could one imagine that? Setting out a table in a space turns out to be a delightful solution to realize flexible partitions, streamlined spaces, and functional compliance in a living hearth. By designing "a table”, a home is simply accomplished.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
With all prior compartments knocked down, a long table horizontally derived from the central pillar is parallel rested under one of the axes along the cross-beam and protrudes bilaterally to define functional spaces. A table could be a partition, a banquet table, a reading desk, a vanity table etc. The separatrix between public and private domains is thereby enabled; while the projection of waving scroll in vision is spatially unfolded.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
A table is a partitioning framework which create multifunction and focus view at home. So a table–could be a partition to set kitchen apart from sitting quarter. A table–could be a backrest of lounging sofa in a salon. A table – could be a banquet table in a dining area. A table – could be a reading desk in a study room.

By virtue of materials, like sliding doors and entrance screen amalgamated from wood-pieces, pillar and walls paved by fair-faced concrete, crystal-clear partitions made of glasses, front gate casted by rusty steel and a table assembled by plywood. Such simple and humble uses of material are employed in constructions, and hence reveal the authentic role of “A Table” in daily lives, presenting the very natural and primitive essence in the design.
The application of glass partitions and sliding doors facilitates flexible conversions from characteristic quadrants into functional extensions. For instance, the study room shapes the visual projection from the living salon via transparent glasses and elevated deck floor; and in alternative layout. And a guest room is well transformed from the study room by swiveling the sliding doors to halo the ambience of a secluded spot.
