Limited by architectural structure, the area of a single storey is just 100-square-meter. Excessive load-bearing walls made the space narrow and dark. In response to the existing condition, the original staircase leading to the basement is replaced by a sunken courtyard, embellished by water curtain wall, creating a sense of space inside and out.
Internal walls and partitions are removed as much as possible, letting furniture and the ornament of floor and ceilings become the focal points separating spaces, as do several translucent screens.
On the first floor, an asymmetrical screen stands out on entry, angled in such a way as to avoid direct views into the space, with residents greeted by a Pop Medusa Occasional Chair from Versace, that blurs the line between functional objects and artwork
