In the double-height space with pitched roof ceiling, the architect explores the relationship between space and nature through the application of materials, light and shadow.

Unnecessary decorative element has been eliminated, leaving the space with only the essentials; using recycled vintage elm, bamboo, rattan as well as other local natural materials, it aims at creating an introspective, rustic and ideological Utopia to call for reflection on the materialism, desire and obsession in our daily life.

Bathroom, kitchenette and TV Cabinet are consolidated into a single “box” in the space, allowing the space to be completely open, fluid and free of full-height partitions. The local bamboo and traditional woven handicrafts are a source of inspiration – the concrete walls are finished in woven bamboo texture, and the custom-made pendant lights utilizes bamboo-weaved baskets as shades to create a unique light-and-shadow effect while increasing soft surfaces to enhance acoustic performance.
