Taiwan | 2020
Breaking the convention of French windows being located on both sides of the bed, the designer has installed the windows in the two-person rooms behind the bed and created a floor-to-ceiling façade between the two. This not only provides relative privacy but also shades the dawn and gently awakens the sleepy traveler. Considering the clientele of the four-person rooms is mainly families, the colorful and warm colors of the room create a world for children to enjoy. Different from the energetic rooms on the second and third floors, the desaturated stucco walls of the fourth-floor rooms are not only waterproof but also provide a respite for eyes stimulated by the complex colors of the city. Instead of using an obvious partition between the bedroom and the bathroom, the transmittant blinds and curtains are used to separate the “dry” and “wet” areas to maintain a sense of transparency; the large windows and glass ceilings are used to invoke the scenery outside the windows. The client and the designer of this project, in response to the fierce competition in Taiwan's lodging industry, which is similar in style, are trying to seek innovation and change, in hopes that this B&B will bring travelers not only a resting place but also a rare comfort during each journey. Located in Hengchun, Pingtung, this project is a residential conversion to a B&B, under the constraints of the budget and the building itself, the designer used interior finish as a supplement, furnishing as the main, shaping the atmosphere of affordable luxury and American countryside space. The colorful geometric and floral elements penetrate the entire scene, composing tropical music with the scenery outside the window.
