In crowded Taipei, we aim to create the value of a home in a small space.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
To enlarge the indoor space visually, we specifically extend the length of the table to reach the balcony, and this enables the table suitable for either dining, working or having fun. Taking advantage of the floor elevation differences between the indoor space and the balcony, the indoor-part of the table functions well for dining and working, while the outdoor-part (which is higher and more like a bar table) serves for leisure time. The customized iron pendant light indoors echoes perfectly with the iron lamp on the outdoor bar table. One can choose to dine/work indoors, or leisurely enjoy a drink or a cigarette outdoors, totally depending on one’s need, mood, or the weather at the moment.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
In order to make the overall space greater from inside to outside, the design adopts an extension as the main axis, through the extension from up down, left to right, even from inside to outside, and combines this with the owner’s needs to give a vision and sense of space even within a small area.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in October 2015 and completed in February 2016, and place in Taipei, Taiwan.

House-owner has a high demand for book show and collection, so we have heightened the vertical use of high places in the small space and combined the open kitchen with book wall in the sitting room and the book wall seems taller with sliding ladder in the space.
In the limited 33 sq.m small space, it comprises a hallway, living room, dining room, kitchen, working area, bathroom and bedroom. As well as these basic spatial functions and needs, we use the design to take the perspective from indoor to outdoor, through the dinner table and lighting to extend outward, to create the effect of movement from inside to outside to borrow the space outside and bring it indoors.
