This is a villa that a father wants to pass on to his son and generation. Therefore, Inheritance is the center concept of the design. The window between each staircase makes it easier to feel the movement and get to know the activities of each family member. We utilized the congenital conditions of the location, and we designed a sliding window on each staircase, so that the light and wind energy are able to across the house in order to reach energy saving.

We utilize different shade of gray to design the appearance of the building. Building was built by different combination of L shape, the uneven design to enhance of the building.

Zhan means to spread up or to expand in Chinese. We named the project Zhan represent to spread up a new life of a family and the generation. This is only an empty land when our client first approach us and it is a home a father wants to pass to his sons and the generation. Therefore , We start from designing the appearance of the whole building to the interior design. Due to the good condition of the location, we consider how to lead in more lights and wind energy in order to reach energy saving. Therefore, we open windows on the front and back side of the building in order to get good ventilation. On the interior design, we also consider the flow of the resident in order to meet with the requirement of their daily life. Moreover, we consider the age of the parents, we also built an elevator inside the house for their convenient.

Investigating how to make a good ventilation and lead the light into the house. For the lighting design, we have consulted a professional on lighting design to join the design of the wall lamp and pendant. Due to some special condition of the house, we design a pendant and wall lamp in order to fit in the design of the house. A Table is the name of the pendant which located on the ceiling of the dining room. Inheritance is the major concept of the design. The shape and mold of the ceiling extended from living room to the dining table. We combined difference type of log and diverse of illuminant. It enhances the light in the form of floodlight and spot light. When the light cast on the table, it feels like a family gathers under the banyan trees and it connected relationship and tied up a family. This is how a traditional Taiwanese used to do.
The wall lamp called Trumpet JC-1, located on the wall between the staircase of 2nd floor. There is no suitable wall lamp that is able to fit or bear on the wall. Therefore, the idea of do it yourself burst out. Trumpet JC-1is an unique wall lamp that combines with the idea of both decoration and light into the design which is breaking through the traditional concept of lamp. Trumpet JC-1 means to declare a family is going to start their new life and expanded in this place. Moreover, the uneven metal pipes arranged in up and down position meaning the notes of trumpet in the way of different rhythm.
To achieve cost control is the first issue we need to consider due to the limitation on the budget of the client. We need to fulfill the 4-story villa, including the construction design, landscape and interior design under the budget, but we also take care of the quality.
The building construction is not in charge by our team, (we in charge of the building design and interior design) therefore, we cannot control the quality of the construction. During the process of construction, we became the consultant of the construction team. We instructed them on the way of constructions in order to meet our standard and quality. Moreover, we need to do some modification and repair after the construction is done in order to fit in our quality of design.
