An interior re-design tender for a condominium tower that's already under construction in Beijing. With the limited existing openings, the design tries to maximize the light into the two storey apartment layout.

Whilst being a high-rise apartment, we tried to translate the essence of traditional Chinese courtyard houses by paying special attention to the hierarchy of communal and private spaces. The introduction of the two storey void with the formal living space flowing into it acts as a transition between the different parts of the apartment and a reminder of the traditional multi-functional courtyard.
