During a period of time when the population was fast growing, most outskirts of metropolitan areas were where the labor-intensive factories located at. With time flies and industrial revolutions, people have new thoughts about the lands and architectures.
Once a 50-year two-floor factory which was located on the industrial area, is now remodeled ingeniously by the designer, in this project, into a one-of-a-kind studio that is currently located on a large land.
Different from the sealed spaces in most of the digital studios, the open style created by installing four large arched and rectangular French windows and iron grille windows which spill the indoor space sunlight and strengthen the connections between the indoor and outdoor space.
