Entry Description

This flat is lived by a single woman with the area of 40 square meters. The poor planning of the layout design resulted in wasting the space of the flat. So it is necessary to re-design the flat which suits a single woman for her living. First, the layout of the flat is re-designed. A bedroom and a bathroom are developed. The high platform will be applied to set up the bedroom with open-plan design. The electric shutter can be rolled down at night which creates the private area. Also, the living area and the kitchen are set up on the lower platform, which are surrounded by outer wooden fencing. The wooden fencing not only can be the protection, but also enhance the privacy; the most special thing is that the kitchen is hidden in the set of cabinets, which reveals the independence and weatherproof design.
