Taipei House | 台灣 台北

This project is located in a community building in Datong District, Taipei, with a space area of ​​300 square meters and double-sided lighting. The owner is a family of four who lived abroad for most of their time, hoping to create a home that satisfies a short stay and relive the family moments.


Reunion is our starting point, to relive the childhood scene, the past life pattern is the fundamental connection between people. Although the children have grown up, can we use this space to let us romp and fall asleep together with our long-time parting families again? Dad's little bedtime story, the lullaby mom was crooning, and the way the children kick the quilt. These pictures are the warmest memories in the owner's mind.


We boldly opened up all the rooms, so that the original four bedrooms and two living rooms can be presented without reservation, so the space can be returned to nature and people get along without barriers. The 12mx3m tatami area on the west wall is the concept of the 'Shared bed'. The boundless concrete platform creates physical freedom, where every family member sleeps and chats together, and the movable sliding wooden boards create a sense of privacy. The changing space form and the materials blur the boundaries of the space, allowing the occupants to communicate and connect in the space calmly and unrestrainedly.


The owner has a lot of collections of books and ornaments, so display and storage are another major design task. We used a large number of wooden plywood to build all the cabinets in this space, control the cost while making the vision concise and uniform, simplify the outline, then hand over the stage to the decoration collections.


The public area uses transparent sliding doors to divide the layout, creating a sense of being spaced but not separated. The variable sliding doors throughout the space weaken the boundaries between public and private realms and also promote parent-child interaction. Create a variety of moving lines, the moving lines here not only refer to people's walking lines, but also the wind, light and sightlines. Through the free shuttle pattern, the line of sight, light, wind and moving lines, lighting into the scenery, creates more new memories of their own in every corner.
