U-shape room
by Atelier Tao+C

For the U-shape room project, architecture studio Atelier Tao+C explores the potential of turning a 42-square-metre single room into a living space.

With the original wall, windows, and ceiling intact, a large geometric volume made from maple plywood was built and occupies a large part of the room, forming a free-standing structure. It accommodates a shower, a kitchen, several closets and bookshelves and well as conversation pits.
