DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Light-house

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential

INSPIRATION:
Light-House is located in Hsinchu County, Taiwan. This multi-storied residential building block is designed in consideration of common Taiwanese terrace style houses. This project seeks to rethink the fundamentals of this particular housing model and intends to reinvigorate its underlining idea as "Lian-dong"; (describing a continuous housing block) and "Tou-tian" (terrace houses describing buildings with roof spaces open to the sky) in the design approach.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project proposes another version of a contemporary housing model for Taiwan, encouraging spatial encounters in connection with the natural environment by introducing the elements of "breathing pocket" between spaces and within each level-courtyards, balconies, terraces, and light wells. These elements are designed in relationship to its internal staircases, rooms and open spaces in order to generate a layered spatial relationship vertically and horizontally within each multi-leveled unit.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The openings and windows bring in natural light and ventilation. Natural light extends to every corner of the home, creating brighter interior spaces and allowing growth and vitality of indoor greenery.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2014 in Taiwan and finished in December 2016 in Taiwan.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Architectural concrete, Silicone resin coating, Granite, Western red cedar, and Stainless steel railings.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Natural light and wind are brought into the interior, through layers of square openings and windows on the southern elevation, transforming the internal spaces with varying lighting conditions throughout the day. Natural light extend to every corner of the home, creating brighter interior spaces and allowing growth and vitality of greenery internally. Externally, instead of a continuous facade treatment, the facade recedes inward at the position of internal sheer walls in order to construct a visual gap between houses, while retaining spatial possibilities for chance encounters between neighboring properties – creating a home environment where "inside as outside, outside as inside".

CHALLENGE:
The contemporary version of the Taiwanese terrace style housing has lost this connection to its original intensions, although people have land, the connection between neighbors and nature has greatly diminished. The hardest thing is that we need to break the old thinking and proposes new version of a contemporary housing model for Taiwan.
