This interior design project pertains to the planning of a private residence that has been in existence for over half a century. The designer has utilized the "Zen" philosophy as the overarching theme of the space, using smooth lines, simple blocks, warm colors, and textured materials to construct the space. The reflection of the light source has been incorporated into the design to complement the space and to create a serene and peaceful atmosphere. The designer also takes into account the storage needs of the occupants. To provide ample storage space without compromising the overall simplicity and comfort of the space, the designer has employed a minimalist approach to the layout of the space, skillfully concealing the storage functions to create a practical and aesthetically pleasing environment that maximizes the use of the available space. The result is a space that embodies the beauty of Zen charm while also being highly functional.

Upon entering the space, you'll notice the inviting and cozy feel created by the warm earth colors that adorn the walls. The open-plan design of the living room, kitchen, and study areas creates a seamless flow of movement, making the space feel larger and more open. The study area is equipped with a glass sliding door that can be adjusted according to the user's needs, providing a level of flexibility that is essential in any modern living space.

One of the standout features of the space is the storage display wall, which is a thoughtful and practical addition that allows residents to keep track of their belongings. The wall is designed to provide easy access to items while avoiding clutter and over-consumption of goods. In addition to the storage wall, each area is equipped with basic storage cabinets, ensuring that there is ample space to keep things organized and tidy.
