In each flat, the area is very small and insufficient to partition off adequate rooms for every dweller, nevertheless, one of three families have got to living in such low quality areas in Hong Kong. This project has to be partitioned off two rooms and a temporary room for domestic helper within a incredible area of 4.

Hence, the aim of this project is to form the rooms as good as possible, in terms of spatial quality. On the original plan, it is not possible to create two rooms which have widows toward outdoor, so I curved the new created wall for setting a window and door on a 45 degree in order to introduce sunlight and air flow into one of the rooms.

On the another room, I patterned the wall with specified openings which insulating the sight but light and air-flow still be able to get into the room. Therefore the nature lighting and ventilation are able to happened in these two rooms.

The entire creation is consisted of customized furnitures, reflective wall penals and a hollow partition wall. All of them were fabricated in factory and then assembled in site, especially the partition wall which was assembled from wooden boards and manufactured by CNC machine as a outcome of contouring process.

All the pieces of boards would be assembled into several large components, and finished with polishing and painting before shipment to the site. Hence, this is a low budget and experimental project which testing the capacity of pre-fabrication in a interior design by utilizing CAD and CAM tools.
