She established the Abba Forest and the Educational Foundation to protect the animals and plants of this forest with love. Let animals and plants grow and thrive in their own way without being disturbed by the outside world. It is the kind of fate that made Ms. Chen who likes to protect nature hand this case over to the design team.

The piano room with 90 degree window view is built as a contemplative corner with oak as the sky and teak as the ground. The platform space in front of the master bedroom is shaped as a semi-outdoor yoga space. Ms. Chen can sit or lie down here, listen to the sound of the water, meditate or do outdoor yoga. In the interior space, in accordance with the client’s preference for nature, the design team used a variety of natural materials. But the design team excluded tropical rain forest species. The materials used in this case include Taiwan native species of wood, stone, wood wool cement board, rattan, cotton, linen, etc.
