Stratification & Border
Since the client is a single female with a distinct insight for taste. She enjoys living in wonderfully beautiful surroundings and is dare to try everything, hoping that life is an aesthetic value with introspection rather than the popularized collective consciousness. Since she has engaged in business travels around the world for a long time, she hopes that her private residence can show an independent and free lifestyle.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Corresponding to the client’s life status of her own single living, we blurred the border between open space and private area; With free planar layout connect the spaces together, the various faces of life can be transformed and shown through the variation of change in the opening or closing of doors.
The pillar which originally occupied the central point of interior layout had been turned into a designed axial center of circle. We outwardly cut out the functions of open space and private area in concentric style to make the space form stratified functions extension.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Many doorways are cleverly designed in this case to emphasize the freedom of movement between different venues. Along the circulation, the space is divided into two blocks by different flooring materials. The living room, study and master bedroom are arranged on one side which is covered with smoked wood flooring, and are segmented by amber glass sliding doors.On the other side, light-color stones are used as substrate to shape beams and columns which originally constrained the space into “framed landscape”. The circulation of a square pattern formed by surrounding the columns links up the kitchen space and the rear reading area and even communicate with the master bedroom. Similarly, sliding doors with amber glass or mirror are also adopted as the ambiguous transition to blur the boundaries between different venues. Even beyond this physical interface, vision may still be extended to the outside, so that each location in the space is the vista of the others.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in March 2015 and finished in January 2016 in Taichung.
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Here are the three key materials: fumigated oak, the steady anchoring effect of fumigated oak in the vista of an open free plane gently mitigates the insecurity of floating vision and enhances the spiritual temperature in the space.
Brown glass, the open and ambiguous vision together with the binary dialectic demonstration of clairvoyance and concealment seem to shut the door, but actually the contradiction still exists in the same space.
Blank, the color of white is a carrier which balances all the weight in the most stable tensional space.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Project Size: 209 sq.m.

No research abstract was performed for this design.
Free circulation: open free plane enriches the taste of life.
Operable partition: various faces of life can be transformed and shown through the variation of change in the opening or closing of doors.
Visual balance: the visual balance in the space is achieved with the contrasting colors/materials/unreal-real relations.
