The lifestyle sprouted from modernism after the industrial revolution era; nowadays, it evolves in an artful taste, the satisfaction of physical needs bonded with philosophical meaning. The minimalism lifestyle encompasses profound thoughts and intricate contexts, which let simplicity become enchanting but arduous to be formed. Aiming to build up an airy, see-through, light-weight, new simple form of living capacity, this residential apartment is conceptualized by connotations beneath the process of probing metaphysics relation. Intentionally and experimentally, reunite the integration of seeming contradictions among curves and angles, polylines and straight lines, polished steels and concrete cements, in which everything culminates with moderate fusion. Possible conditions of light, such as opaque and transparency, light transmission and ambient occlusion, generate optical illusions; nevertheless, geometry and linear misalignment can also lead to another visual deception. The consequence induces to think of the fundamental nature of reality, the relationship between substance and attribute, and between potentiality and actuality. Massing, proportion, and penetration are crucial to be composed of architecture interior space. The wall is considered as a single composition of a three-dimensional framework. After being cladded with bent stainless steel, the wall metamorphoses into a functional carrier, which encompasses lighting, bears kitchen, sanitary, storage, pipes, air-cons…etc, essential fixtures of daily living. While natural light refracts into the curvy wall, its hairline luster adds an enticing touch to spatial forms and expression.
