A-Ruby Interior Design

Project Brief

46-square-meters residence for a single woman, with originally fragmentary layout, was integrated in the space. With the open kitchen, as the core, to meet the owner’s lifestyle of loving cooking and partying, which more effectively improve the moving line efficiency. On the other hand, the open kitchen also expands the scope of the public area and lighting, with the ground stretched window blind to extend the vision scale of the window.

In the soft decoration design, the bold use of ceiling with exposed industrial wind pipe, retro brick totem, herringbone and other different style elements, as well as delicate wire board details, all create a bright and meticulous visual balance and living personality.

Project Need

The living room retains the original ceiling height, and the storage area is planned behind the sofa, to create a height of space and a tidy feeling. The bedroom metope of side oblique cut is combined with the restore mirror to the ground, to solve the acute angle that looks directly after entering the door, and also open the field of vision of the sofa area. The sliding door design in the bedroom area is in line with privacy considerations, and the expanded entrance frame makes it easier to access and use. In addition, through the design of symmetrical bed head and the setting of bedroom study, it conceals the fragmentary feeling from beam and column, with additional storage function.

Design Challenge

There were the water leakage and window frame seepage problems in the old residence of nearly 20 years, and affected by the stone washing material of the building appearance, it is difficult to find the root cause; therefore, this project spent more effort and cost in the early construction period, in the catch of leakage and waterproof engineering renovation, and also redesigned and elevated the window frame position, to completely solve the residential physical problems.


Due to the original lighting from only one side, the integrated residential layout greatly improves the natural lighting efficiency of the kitchen, living room and bedroom, and expands the bedroom door frame. By connecting the space in series, the sharing of lighting and ventilation can be increased. Recyclable materials such as wood floor and system cabinet are also used in the building materials.
