The interior design of Elegant Charm, created by Chang Yu Chiu, showcases a modern style that outlines the residence with clean, straight lines in a neat manner. What sets this design apart is the use of natural elements such as marble and wood, instantly making the space feel fresh and inviting. The large, floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to adorn the interiors, creating a light-filled atmosphere.
The open traffic flow in the house offers a sense of spaciousness and allows for a seamless transition between rooms. Transparent glass and mirrors are strategically used to open up the available space and give the rooms a feeling of depth. This clever combination not only enhances the visual appeal but also creates a sense of expansiveness.
In the 120 square meter space, Elegant Charm features three bedrooms, one living room, one dining room, two bathrooms, one kitchen, and a study room. The design team, led by Chang Yu Chiu, carefully considered the layout to ensure functionality and comfort.
The half-height bar divides the dining area and kitchen, creating independent spaces that are still intimately connected. Instead of a solid wall behind the sofa, gray glass is used to keep the spaces separate while allowing them to remain visually linked. This see-through design provides an unobstructed view throughout the open-plan room, allowing daylight to travel and creating a bright and transparent depth of vision.
One of the design challenges was to provide a space for guests to stay overnight. In the study room, a couch stands next to the window, while a high cabinet at the back offers ample storage space and conceals a standing gallery shelf for valuable collections. The bedrooms continue the modern style of the public sphere, with different shades of wood grains and warm white daylight creating a warm and uncluttered space.
Elegant Charm was completed in January 2021 in New Taipei City, Taiwan. The design was meticulously researched and executed to achieve a balance between aesthetics and functionality. The result is a residence that exudes elegance and charm, while also providing a comfortable and inviting living environment.
