Within a newly developed area of Taipei City, ever more concrete jungles are created in the neighbourhood. Residential towers built right next to each other lead to certain discomfort for flat owners. We aimed to bring craftsmanship and carefully executed interventions to tackle this issue for an airy and refreshing atmosphere with desired natural lighting quality and improvement of ventilation as well as optimized layout of private and shared spaces for the family members.

The apartment has continuous window openings on Southwest side of the building. It has been proposed to create a corridor instead of series of rooms along those openings to introduce natural light and ventilation for better comfort, health and mood. In response to the awkwardness through series of windows adjacent to the neighbour building while keeping the mentioned benefits, we installed custom-made louvers with groove patterns in various orientations lacquered in an uplifting yellow to improve privacy while giving the flat a fresh look on both interior and exterior.

The result is rather pleasing than using curtains or films for its versatility. One can slide and play with pattern overlap to create different illuminating quality.

The bathroom carries a unique design. The concept features a circular plan in which we resurfaced it with custom-made green hue fireclay tiles. Dark metallic finish hardware, the top with integrated washbasin and glossy kaki green lacquered furniture units together characterizes a quaint and elegant space for an elevated daily washroom experience.

The mix between luxury and craftsmanship is accentuated by the presence of the Origin topsolid freestanding bathtub. Origin implies the beginning of craftsmanship and industry through the different fabrication of wood, metal, or glass. Amalgamating each one to perfectly establish each element. The silhouette of Topsolid bathtubs reminds the potter that moulded the vase, like the marble reminds the sculptor, carving his work.
