This project has a 380 square meter outdoor courtyard, and the building itself is surrounded by scenery. Therefore, the designer opens up the layout with large windows on all sides to preserve the green landscape and allow natural sunlight to enter and fill the interior. In order to make the space with light everywhere, not cutting off either visual nor spatial sense, the designer forms a framework with light bands. Through the light, the area attributes are defined. At the same time, the foyer is hollowed out to link the living room and dining room with an open approach. The partitions and cabinets are also designed with a sense of penetration. The greenery framed by the large open windows is allowed to enter the interior and becomes the most natural decoration in the space. The building material is used as the carrier of light, through diffuse lighting design and reflection of reflective materials. Let the light pass between the virtual and the real, and extend naturally in the space, from the living room to the dining room to the bedroom, using light to dance a rich pattern.

Human's internal thinking and external living space are symbiotic and coexist. Space is a projection from life, beyond the practical function of a living container. We use space to write our living stories, to depict the attitude of the individual's purest self, to interpret the unique spatial imagination for each user, and to tailor the space for the residence.
