Apartment of Perfect Brightness

Beginning with the owner’s stated preference for a home with abundant natural light, the name of this project was adapted from that of a famous Beijing garden. The idea of “perfect brightness” was 􀁇􀁚􀁒􀁎􀁑􀁔􀁇􀁆􀀃􀁃􀁔􀁅􀁊􀁋􀁖􀁇􀁅􀁖􀁗􀁔􀁃􀁎􀁎􀁛􀀝􀀃􀁄􀁇􀁉􀁋􀁐􀁐􀁋􀁐􀁉􀀃􀁙􀁋􀁖􀁊􀀃􀁔􀁇􀁕􀁇􀁃􀁔􀁅􀁊􀀃􀁋􀁐􀁖􀁑􀀃􀁖􀁊􀁇􀀃􀁒􀁕􀁛􀁅􀁊􀁑􀁎􀁑􀁉􀁋􀁅􀁃􀁎􀀃􀁇􀄼􀁇􀁅􀁖􀁕􀀃􀁑􀁈􀀃􀁆􀁋􀄼􀁇􀁔􀁇􀁐􀁖􀀃􀁓􀁗􀁃􀁎􀁋􀁖􀁋􀁇􀁕􀀃and colors of daylight, a system was developed whereby ambient lighting could change from warm to cool white, depending on the season, time of day, and outdoor lighting conditions. The light is “concentrated” at the center in two twisting, shell-shaped feature walls, drawing visitors in from the entry. Further, working from the ’s second preference to eliminate clutter and create a suitable environment to display an art collection it was decided that all interior walls would be clad in folding wood doors, 132 in total, that would essentially make all them transformable: when open, bookshelves, storage areas, televisions, and headboards would be revealed; when closed, all would be concealed, leaving only a simple space forming a serene, museum-like backdrop for the artworks.


My main role was 3d modeling and visualization along with product and material specification.  I was also involved in preparing and drawing RCP's.
