Architectural Sophistication

Adorning the various spaces, the statement plaster portal frames lend an air of architectural sophistication. These frames not only serve as structural elements but also create depth and visual interest, captivating the eye and inviting exploration within the space. The seamless flow between spaces is facilitated by the removal of walls, guiding the visitor through a looping path.

Natural Tranquility

The material palette embraces the beauty of raw and natural elements, such as warm wood, delicate rattan, and textured plaster. Through the interplay of these materials, VC Residence establishes a serene connection with nature, evoking a sense of tranquility and calmness.

Japanese-Inspired Elegance

Inspired by the client’s affinity for Japanese design, subtle touches of Japanese aesthetics are thoughtfully incorporated throughout the apartment. Large Japanese-style sliding doors, characterized by clean lines and understated elegance, delicately separate spaces while maintaining the apartment’s fluid flow and infusing a touch of traditional charm.
