Entry Description: The show flat is a 130sqm 3 bedrooms 2 levels show flat. We wanted to create a comfortable, spacious, loft space within a 4.3m height split level, as well as giving a luxurious touch. The original space feels confined due to low ceiling height. Design challenge was to create a space that defines a clean, calm, cozy living style. We sculpted the space like an artwork. Since it's all in a very tight dimensions, our completed loft ground floor height is 2.05m and first floor height is 1.95m. Concealed lighting, wall wash lighting from bottom were used as main lighting solutions to avoid additional add-on dimensions to lower the ceiling height, plus creating a soft, even, and relaxing atmosphere. Concealed lighting space also space to run A/C pipe, spaces are always multi-purpose, compact yet complex. A combination of wood texture, cement boards, stone tiles was used to keep the ambiance natural and comfortable.

About the Designer/Company
Atelier Global is a young and aspiring practice that has strong belief in the power of design and creativity. We regard architectural design as quintessential to living environments that constantly encounters new and emerging needs. Hence we are not bounded by a conventional modernism approach with a singularity concern on differentiation of space and function. Rather, we always search for possibilities that may not be easily foreseen, and create projects with new insights by establishing various seemingly unrelated cross links to different project types, scales and spaces. Our systematic yet trans-boundary approach on design has been successfully applied to comprehensive project types including culture, education, hospitality, living communities, retail and working spaces. All of our projects are executed with critical attention to details and our completed projects have received renowned recognition from the professional industry. Atelier Global has received numerous design awards from Hong Kong and Cross-strait professional institutions and is actively involved in academic and cultural research including design Biennales and university teaching.
