The general impression of paper is that it is a thin and light material of sleek quality.
In an old apartment shrouded in darkness and a heavy atmosphere, the concept of papercraft sculpture
was applied to fold and form layers in the space.
As the gaps between the walls and the ceiling are pulled back, the visual layers and spatial depth are enriched, while letting light into the room.
The bright and airy vibe of the new space draws a strong contrast to the dark and heavy atmosphere before.
The new design also fills the old apartment with youthful energy.
The markings left behind by the formwork on the old ceiling are specifically preserved to retain the characters of the old apartment.
Like paper creases, these markings are fused with the new papercraft sculpture ceiling design, which opens up the cramped space.
The contrast between the rough and fine textures of the old and new design forms interesting and rich visual layers.
The airy and simple papercraft sculpture ceiling design was integrated with the apartment’s light fixtures, air conditioning, and fire safety equipment.
Furthermore, the curved papercraft sculpture design also lets the light be traced along the ceiling and scatter onto every corner.
The sleek and neat division of the walls allows for free movement and flow of light throughout the apartment.
Finally, airy and simple living space and visual composition were created via the implementation of two major systems.
