As the Director of T.M design Studio, Cheng-Hsuan is responsible for upholding aesthetically beautiful design concepts and provide clients with the best quality residential interior designs.
I am the founder and design director of T.M Design Studio in Taiwan, and a very practical designer. I am extremely demanding for the quality of life. I am focused on pursuing the aesthetics in interior design. Every piece of work I handle is a challenge and a breakthrough of what I knew before. For me, it is a revolution that transcends beauty.
When I was little, I am a naughty boy who loves graffiti. I used to follow my grandpa, a carpenter, to the construction site. I would play on my own besides him while he was working. As I got older, my grandpa shared more and more things about construction sites to me. As time goes by, I gradually become more and more interested in interior and architectural design, and made up my mind to be a designer.
We uphold the design concept of continuous innovation, strive to maximize the space aesthetics and practical functions, adhere to professional construction quality, and continuous warranty maintenance, and strive to provide customers with the most complete and best quality engineering services. We create the best living space with professional design and a rigorous construction team. In addition, the company also has different types of design cases, allowing talented and creative designers to take advantage of them.
The company's main service projects are mainly residential interior design, which includes interior space design, commercial space planning, old house renovation and new construction, office space design, landscape and garden design, etc., and provides free professional design consultation and floor plan planning.
The purpose of "design" is to meet people's needs. Mankind's pursuit of beauty is endless. It must be rational, economy, aesthetic and original at the same time to become a well-designed and good product.
I personally like the design of pure white style. Richard Meier once said: "White can let you enjoy the different sunlight at sunrise and sunset, or even the sky without the sun. White also lets you ignore where and at what time, I can clearly see some details." For me, pure white can better present the level and meaning in the design.
Good design is nothing more than taking human factors into the design and meeting human needs, while also reducing the burden on the environment.
Simple, pure, natural and practical.
The design process is nothing more than understanding the needs of users. Then we presents users’ blueprint by analyzing, creating, modifying, integrating and finalizing.
In fact, my culture background does not do much to my designer. Since each user’s needs are not the same, their needs and requests are always my first priority.
We are very grateful.
For us, the award is to add some light to this year's downturn, which is very exciting, and we also hope to provide more creative creations to everyone.
The entries were decided after the team discussion. The two winning works "Connection" and "Dual Concepts" were also loved and highly queried by many customers before the competition; therefore, we want to share them with more people.
For me, every creation is a challenge.
The biggest challenge is to think outside the box and meet users’ needs as possible. Building the space that raise the fitness with users to the limit is always challenging.
Participating in the competition is a self-challenge, and winning the awards means breaking the framework of creation. By competing with different designers, we can also improve the vision and variability of how you see different designs. For me, this also brings many benefits to my career.
1. The trust of the customer
2. The sense of accomplishment after seeing the work
3. Different designs can be innovated owing to the needs of different customers.
Each country has its own unique folklore. Taiwan can integrate elements of certain ethnic groups, such as aboriginal culture, cypress and Hakka cloth, which all show ethnicity and uniqueness. Such cultural characteristics are competitive.
1. Due to the current development of online video and audio, there will be more and more self-taught designers in the future, but practical operation still needs to consider reality.
2. As the VR technology is gradually getting well-developed, it will be more integrated into the details of life.
3. In the future, more and more designs will be combined with public institutions to present local aesthetics and culture.
The most important thing is to understand the meaning of design. Justifiability, economy, aesthetic, and originality are the principles of my design, so I suggest others to discuss the design you are looking for in depth.
Usually, I will browse some well-known architecture and interior design websites. Sometimes I will go abroad to visit special architectural design sites. Everyone has different ways to improve their abilities. It is important to find the right way.
Inspiration for life usually comes from small things, such as people you meet, conversation with friends, browsing articles on the Internet, and happenings in a simple daily life. Some people are unsatisfied with their daily lives, and that’s how “demand and needs” are required. In my opinion, design is to meet people's needs, and simple daily life often carries different details and meanings.
Positive and confidence is what I think is the key to success.
In the creation, I believe that I can bring practical and textured design to users while meeting their needs. Of course, I also have a positive attitude towards all aspects of design so that future users will not be affected by those unrealistic designs.
T.M Design Studio strikes the balance and feasibility between justifiability, economy, aesthetic, and originality by presenting the integrity of the construction without error while maximizing the budget.
