Element Apartment is a minimalist interior design located in Taipei, Taiwan, designed by Marty Chou Architecture. This is a 80㎡ apartment for a young couple with one child. They had a simple request: two bedrooms, and living quality. The architects wanted to capture the basic elements of living quality – sun light, natural materials, and fluidity of space. Visual elements were reduced to create neutral ambience so that eyes focus on the depth of space and variation of light. Wood and fabric are selected to punctuate or merge with the space and to provide warmth and intimacy; while steel, ceramic, and tiles are used where durability was required. Doors are set not only to divide rooms but to unite space; when opened, the full height panels disappear and make the entire unit one continuous whole. Walking in it, instead of feeling moving from room to room, it feels as if roaming in an ever-unfolding space.
