This plan to renovate one condominium entirely was a large undertaking, but the home is a very spacious and comfortable one, with a large curved window looking out at the view of Higashiyama Mountain.
As a whole, the impression is of complexity because of the corridor and the bath, toilet and laundry positions, but I used the same teak panels for the storage space doors and the entrance door, and where possible used one single material for every wall to give a unified feeling, and as a result I was able to make it seem as simple as possible and show the space clearly.
I moved the kitchen from the back area to the more open dining-living area, so that the occupant can see much more of the interior while cooking, and also enjoy the view of the nearby Higashiyama Mountain.
For the purpose of privacy and light adjustment, a continuous wooden electric blind was installed in the curved window, and it functions well to controls the relationship between the exterior and interior and adds a touch of luxury to the lives of the occupants.
The most difficult aspect of a condominium renovation is the plumbing. It requires time, skill and effort to put in new fittings for the bath, washbasins and toilet etc. In this case, I put in a large bathtub, one that is rarely found in a condominium like this, and making it a 24-hour bath, the occupants can enjoy a comfortable bathe at any time.
