Spirit of Place Residential Apartment by JS Chen & HH Lin - Archlin Studio

Home > Winners > #44097


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Spirit of Place

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential Apartment

INSPIRATION:
This was an awe-inspiring brief from the lovely grandparents - to take an old, 40 year old apartment, with hidden mountain view and to literally - invite the mountain in. We bathed in the hot springs and gathered its essences: white washed timbers for the hot springs, ash and walnut timber framed windows and floors - all decorated with 'live artwork' to mirror the natural elements found in the mountain, and recreate the light and spatial spirit it truly deserved. Now - the mountain smiles at them - as it watches their grandchildren play through the wide vista windows.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The brief was to transform this dark 40-year-old apartment into a flexible open space. The design concept was to come up with a free-flowing solution that connected the natural space outside with the internal space. We removed solid walls and built movable see-through bookcases in public areas which effectively defined the spaces without permanently separating those areas. Low key color tones and natural interior finishes are used to create an apartment that feels bigger than it actually is.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
To provide flexibility that allows the owner to reconsider the use of the space. Given the space is limited, adaptation and flexibility are the key to comfortable living. Also natural light was permeated through the space by removing some existing walls. Large timber window frames and see-through bookcases are ways we help bring daylight and landscape into darker areas of the home

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The best assets of this property is its natural light and the scenery. This residence is designed with a contemporary appeal, timber linings with minimal lines, which can stand the test of time and reflect the surrounding environment. We designed this residence with a contemporary appeal, timber linings with minimal lines that are free from ornamentation, which can stand the test of time and reflect the surrounding environment. Since natural light and scenery was now brought inside, it made every room vibrant and alive. Colors appear to radiate from natural timber and soft furnishings, and make the owners feel healthy and inspired to be living close to nature’s heart.

CHALLENGE:
The internal space was divided by existing columns that fragmented the apartment into small dark areas, which meant that the sight-lines to the windows were obstructed from most parts of the apartment. The challenge was to transform this 40 year old apartment into a flexible open space which would reveal nature’s beauty and allow their grandchildren to run-free while still maintaining some privacy.
