Trust Home

Best Implemented Apartment / Private House Interior Design Project

About the project
The inception of the project was concurrent with the owners being blessed with their firstborn child seven years ago. The project’s concept, like the new family member, was born and evolved throughout these seven years. As the client could not fund the construction steadily, the challenges that the architect/construction manager was facing were turned into opportunities to improve the design every step of the way. The form was shaped with a simple cuboid which allows the implementation of spatial hierarchy through the separation of certain spaces and activities on different levels. By combining a double-height and semi-transparent cube, which serves as an interrelated space for family gatherings and living area, with the original cuboid,the architect was able to create a dynamic relation between different parts of the house utilizing natural light, yard view, materials, and proportion. To create a more lively experience for the family, every space is designed to be filled with light.
