Urban Oasis Residential apartment

This is an urban oasis, a sanctuary place where we hope to balance the couple’s busy lives in Taipei. The beautiful mountains surrounds the apartment has inspired us to design a fluid space and bring the natural landscape into the interior. Without moving a single partition, the original 3-room layout of the 22-year old building is kept, with additional storage space and walk-in closet. To utilize every corner, left over spaces in kid’s bedrooms have turned into study and reading zone.
