Living Spaces

Design concept: a reflection of the house and connection among residents In the tempestuous, bustling city, by using appropriate "space", hope that people can feel immediately refreshed once they return home. The public area is more open because of the eliminated walls, and by blurring the interior boundaries, space can help to increase the interaction among inhabitants in daily lives. Thus, there is an oasis in this fast-paced city. About space: This is a design project of a one-floor house in an old building. We widened the area by eliminating some walls and non-standard design also allowing light in and air to flow, and the residents can have more conversations in the public area through the unclear space division. The room was dim due to the original limitation of the light, by removing part of the wall, the light was able to access the room. Inside, the long corridor creates a quiet space for respiting from the noise of the city and also increases the flow of air. Using penetrating materials like glass create a composite space that can be independent and open, breaking the limitations of the area, making the interior more interesting, and breaking the framed thinking of "the space should be like this". It enlarged the public area when necessary, and the residents can have more conversations in life and have a warmer connection. Independent TV wall designed as the division between the kitchen and the living room, but does not separate the space between them, still letting airflow and allowing light to go through. Materials, Style: The spirit of the urban oasis is to have a peaceful resting place in the center of the blustery city. In terms of colors, most of the walls in the rooms are mainly white. Whiteness means cleanness and naturalness, and the white oak wood veneer dyed increases the warmth of the room. In. Green is used as the space embellishment, which slightly adds the natural concept into white and warm space and preserves a touch of lightness.
