Having been impressed by lots of architectural designs during business travels, the owner of this apartment commissioned the design firm to design her 180-square-metre space in Chiayi city. Without a specific brief, the design team had free rein to conceive a design concept almost from scratch, with the only request being the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, dynamic geometric spaces as main concept throughout the home.
With a design strategy to play with ideas of chiaroscuro, rather than pose contrasts of shadow and light, the contrast was derived through black layering and an abundance of light.
