Outline

This is a renewal project bearing the aesthetics of the old Taiwanese era, in the form of a corner building in a quiet community. We did our best in preserving the old tiles, fine stone finishing and window grille that have marked the era this building has been through. We envisaged a home that houses a lab space for kids to conduct scientific experiments, a gathering place for neighbors over coffee. From the viewpoint of the dwelling characteristics, this design seeks to capture the local architectural aesthetics and the good old corridor social fabric in the old buildings, which are too often on the demise in the contemporary urban environment.

Evaluation

On the one hand, this work opens the traditional urban and rural street arcade buildings, allowing the first floor to be completely open to the street as a natural open space for community neighborhood gatherings; the second floor allows the owner to study and do homework with the community children after school. The third floor is a living house of its own, which really makes this originally closed and quiet country neighborhood have a comfortable and leisurely vitality.
