Project Brief

The spatial configuration is different from the general residence in that the dining room is the main space and the round table is inserted -- the starting point of the concept. The eastern point of view is inserted under the western design vocabulary. The moving line planning makes the round table turn like the gears of a clock. And dining-room also is the gear of this home, let the family gather.

Project Need

There are large structural beams and columns in the living room, so the wall and ceiling are shaped by curved methods. The TV wall also covers the study space at the back with beautiful marble cambered surface, and the curving edge brings the scenery out of the window into the interior.
