Flow and Continuity
Forms, layers and material together organize and connect various areas and rooms in this apartment unit. A timber framework is first integrated into the initial volume. It brings the different areas into alignments. To keep the spaces uninterrupted, all the existing columns and beams, large sliding panels, screens and background lighting are concealed within. Two forms intersect this timber framework. The first is in the form of a curved insert to create a flow from the entrance running the length of the house. The transverse volume, in a lighter shade of timber, contains all the wet areas on one side. The second is in the form of timber fins. It partitions the space but with transparency to create a visual extension of the main living area.
