Studio In2 plays with proportions inside Nancy's Big Apartment in Taipei
Full-height partition walls and tall furnishings exaggerate a sense of space in this apartment in Taipei, which has been revamped by Studio In2.
Nancy's Big Apartment – which is named after its owner – formerly played host to a series of claustrophobic rooms, but now has fixtures and furnishings that help "disrupt the visual proportions and challenge the original sense of space".
"The height of the space does not evoke a sense of pressure, but rather creates a comfortable and open spatial experience," said the studio.
While Studio In2 has tried to brighten the rest of the apartment by painting surfaces white, the ceiling and rear wall of the bedroom have been lined in dark wood to give a cosier feel. A panel of fluted glass can also be moved across to close off the bedroom from an adjacent dressing area.
"The design idea of using one big sliding door for the limited ceiling height of the mezzanine space is also inspired by 16:9 movie format – the width creates a big, dreamy view, just like watching a film," added the studio.
This isn't the only Taipei apartment that plays with proportion – A Little Design recently converted a 17.6 square-metre piano studio in the city into a micro flat, complete with space-saving furniture.
