DESIGN NAME:
Tsai Residence

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residence

INSPIRATION:
Constraints during the design process can come in various forms. they can be socially, culturally, economically, and politically driven, adding a whole new aspect to the development of projects. tai & architectural design has envisioned the space for a couple, who work in central taipei city. in regards to the property, it may be only rented for five years from the government, at the end of which, they must return it in the same condition.Following these guidelines, the architect has maintained the flexibility of the interior while providing a movable storage system that can still be reused when the contract has expired.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Nowadays, in many city such as Hong Kong, Tokyo, Taipei even London, the young people cannot afford to buy a property to settle down as a “home” because of the high price of the house. This is the phenomenal young people have to face and, according to Tai & Architectural Design, the architects have to take the responsibility to control the budget and also keep the quality of the space. The Tsai apartment is being rented by a couple working in the centre of Taipei, who asked Tai & Architectural Design to create an interior that can be reverted once their lease is up. All the surfaces are painted white to keep the space bright and clean, including the ductwork and electric cables exposed across the ceiling. The architects chose the white colour to blur the profile of the space and make the interior as minimal as possible to celebrate the purity of the space. The front door opens into the living and dining room, which includes a large projector screen on the wall facing the grey sofa. A door in the large window at the end of the space leads onto a small balcony surrounded by glass balustrades, so the view across the city remains unobstructed from the living area. The study and storage space are situated on one side of the corridor, while another bedroom and bathroom are positioned on the other. Simple freestanding shelving units sit against the walls in the dining area and study, slotting under the ceiling beams. “We kept all the flexibility of the interior and made the storage movable so it can be reused when the contract expired,” said the architects. White pendant lights in various shapes hang above the dining table, study desk and bedside tables. Pastel tones used on tables, bedding and cushions provide hints of colours, and wooden dining chairs bring a touch of warmth to the otherwise stark interior.
