"The house is a space that is used every day, and itself must be elegant, casual and comfortable. Beyond simply designing the main elements of the area, designers must also incorporate the aesthetic of understated luxury they envision in the space without compromising its functionality. Starting from a bright and open field of vision, the details are embedded in the atmosphere of the humanities, reflecting the many philosophical layers in life.

The designer used the architectural appearance of the diamond art extended to the interior, the emptiness of the real echo so that the interior more than an aesthetic detail. Reflecting the elegant living style of the owner, the space was crafted thoughtfully using a variety of natural materials to create an atmosphere of great flourishing through its wood panel walls, featured murals, stainless steel metal, and design for abundance.

Living spaces naturally require significant storage space to hold the necessities and simple pleasures of life. These furniture series come from the designer's imagination of a better life, which integrates deep life aesthetics and storage functions, and then translates into design inspiration to create original designs. Rather than cluttering up the space and aesthetic with bulky cabinets, the designer specifically designed many hidden storage units and furniture arrangements for the project to promote an open and free space. Other storage units were also designed be keep pathways clear while still being convenient and functional. Overall, these storage units were designed with functionality in mind both internally and externally.

As sunlight streams through the windows, its staggered refraction and shadows shift across the interior as the day goes by. Overarching the perpetual activity of urban life while isolated from its chaos through its simple elegance, this project stands on the edge of both enterprise and enlightenment. It is a hidden space crafted around the enrichment of the mind and soul – a distinctive experience achieved by its natural and innovative design.
