Outline

We received this commission to design a guest house prototype for neutral genders who enjoys a smart living in a metropolitan city. The site is compact with partial double-height ceiling. We conceived a movable ladder and a step bench to connect different levels while giving a touch of playfulness and a sense of gathering to the house. The design also gives a succinct and exquisite visual language by splitting spatial programs with two contrasting but also coherent materials: birch wood and glazed tiles. The result is a remarkable living experience happening within 47 square meters.

Evaluation

In the face of the narrow and high-density space and low budget challenge, this work has a series of hidden or obvious combination cabinets and simple and light layers, so that the space can have a real and rich life, perfectly interpreting an innovative miniature home!
