maybe this is the first time I am talking about interior project from taiwan? … i know. I have been wanting to introduce good design work from taiwan … then i found this beautiful project through archicake ( as I mentioned previously, this online magazine is written in traditional Chinese only ) and i am thinking ” i have to let people know about this ! ”
resident Jang(姜) by SUNliho architect + designers ( 孫立和建築師事務所 )
at the very beginning, client wanted to create a home without TV and living room – a home that family members won’t just sit on the big couch, watch TV or play TV game, with NO communication or interaction to each other. ( which,sadly, is pretty common in most of the families ) this space should be a place for everyone to share their day with each others.
thus all the rooms are facing toward the public open space ( living / dining room ). It seems work out perfectly in terms of leading all circulation into this space, but same time the dynamic movement make furniture setting a tough question to resolve.
Architects looked at it as similar relationship between urban plaza ( open space ) and surrounding buildings. This plaza should have enough flexibility to accommodate a varieties of events, public or private.
looking from living room to office space
all doors are blending with walls.
wall became part of bookshelf
Solid and transparent materials made a quiet transition between private and public space…
