Excerpt: Dreamscape Apartment is a residence designed by the architectural firm Red5 Studio. The owners of this apartment are both working in the flow of art, there are so many inspirations and regenerates around them, and even the way they enjoy their home is not an exception. An Interesting title would make an attractive design, we believe.

The owners of this apartment are both working in the flow of art, there are so many inspirations and regenerates around them, and even the way they enjoy their home is not an exception. An Interesting title would make an attractive design, we believe.
And now, dream on!
We create a buffer area before the Dream Cave by walking from the entrance. Inside the cave is a doorway with no door that leads to other sections. There is a smaller cave right in the centre of the apartment: the working area and the view catcher; this cave will “make noise” for parties (DJ is the owner’s hobby). Opposite that small cave is the living room with a giant sofa inspired by the Space-Age language, with many oranges in the mainly white apartment.
Next to the working area, we put a tiny corner called “Autism Corner”, drawing close to a small corner of the apartment, and it comes with a window for not to drown the space around. On the other side of the small cave, we have an open cave at the entrance – where we have the kitchen and dining area. The signature of this area is the furniture that is not only retro but also modern with acrylic painted green and stainless steel. The resin dining table is inspired by water, making the light effect look like water.
Inside the bedroom, the space opened up – bedroom, bathroom connected without door and only separated by curves or glass wall.
Windows or balcony access are covered by curves to eliminate those standard straight lines.
Many colours have been used in this apartment from the furniture and many shapes in the design languages Retro, Retro Future, and Space-Age.
The apartment uses natural lights. Opened corner of the cave will catch the sunlight and deliver it to the critical intersection of the apartment. At night, the cave changes the atmosphere to the inspired colour from the 60s 70s movies, alongside the melody that the owner plays every night.
