Cloister Residence by Te Chih Lo

Home > Winners > #134037


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Cloister

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residence

INSPIRATION:
Taking "cloister" as the main visual concept of the space, all sides of the floors, ceilings and walls are applied with reflective materials such as mirrors and glasses. For instance, the mirror material used beneath the ceiling creates an illusion of duplex apartment arrangement. While solving the problem of narrowed space, the technique can thus make the residents feel like the space is heightened.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Changing the original narrowed floor plan, the designer knocked through and combined two individual spaces. With application of transparent/translucent design technique and a smooth flow, a great amount of natural lighting is introduced, creating an ever-changing effect as if in the cloister. The overlapping visual perception creates multilayers in the living space, containing a big family of three generations.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The warmth of wood, and the delicacy of stone, amalgamate into an elegant atmosphere. Reflective and glass materials are ingeniously used, allowing lights to stream and travel through the common area, corresponding to the outside environment, contributing to a smooth clear flow.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project is finished in October 2021 in Hsinchu City, Taiwan.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
In the middle of the living space, the marble TV wall divides the common area while keeping the space open-floor plan. From the entrance, one turns right to enter the living room with the study/workspace connected beside. While lights are switched off, the glass material will appear reflective, similar to a grey mirror to maintain privacy.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
This project is 149 square meters.

TAGS:
Interior Design, Residence, Cloister, Marble, Modern

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The place is decorated with veneers of CNS F1 label that the average formaldehyde emission is below 0.3(mg/L). The eco-friendly building materials, curtains, and Dulux coating are also used in the space. The original wooden and marble floorings are kept without doing extra reconstruction or redecoration. While combining the new design with them, the designer reduces possible waste.

CHALLENGE:
From the dining room, the kitchen and the study's use of glass panels and the grey mirror above the TV wall, allow the users to interact and see each other's location without any barrier. The reflective feature helps connect each family member and the common areas, making the living space greater than the sum of each part.
