Evaluation

Facing the limitations and challenges of Taiwan's most traditional, narrow, and deep long street house, this work perfectly expresses brand-new ideas. Backpackers' inn is based on communal life and discovers the richness of life from the plainness. It features the flexibility/transparency of one-story communal living and shared beds that have commonality with long, narrow spaces, and brings a sense of freedom and openness in the common bathroom space. Objects with modern characteristics and the marking system as a whole breathe a sort of new life into this traditional street house, creating a new form of shared habitation, which fully expresses the values of the flexible and positive life of the backpackers' inn!
