Outline

This is a renovation project of one unit of a rental apartment built over 40 years ago. The site is near to a railway station in a mixed land use area. Since 2014, we have transformed three other stereotyped apartment units into the ones with strong individuality. At the end, the entire building will become an assemblage of diversified dwellings and work spaces. This time, we created a unique apartment unit by placing a wall a little higher than eye level, tilted a little along the main axis of the unit. The spatial articulation can be altered by rotating the central part of the wall according to the daily use and situation at the same time providing a diversity of the luminosity with reflections on the zinc-coated steel surfaces of the wall.
