Light, humanity and art are essential elements of daily life
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
How to utilize space in an irregular pentagon? Our decision was to adapt our designs to the given shape and,through careful arrangement of all elements, allow the rough stone to shine.
We restructured the available space, rearranging the existing skylight, light-absorbing shades and windows to let adequate light into every room.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The steeply arched curve of the stairs underside inspired us to let it merge smoothly with the surrounding shapes and lines. Light installations help to create an interesting interplay of light and shadow, generating a kaleidoscope of splendid geometric shapes.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in August 2012 and finished in May 2013 in Taipei
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Taking our cue from origami, we folded the iron parts extending from the entrance hall into 3 large frames that serve as support for designer lighting fixtures, creating a postmodern ambience.
Throughout the day, as the light shifts, our see-through designs produce interesting patterns of light playing on the walls, further underlining the overall artistic effect.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
2486 sq ft

TV set always be the main focus in most Taiwanese living space. The main focus of our living space should not be something as impersonal as a TV set. Therefore, we opted to put the TV away from the center and add a fireplace for enhanced comfort and a warmer atmosphere.
Meanwhile, we separated the main bathroom into two units by inserting a stairwell, making sure that dry and wet spaces are neatly separated.
