Boundary in Taipei, Taiwan by Wei Yi International Design Associates

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Article source: Wei Yi International Design Associates 

The concept, Wabi-Sabi, from Japanese aesthetics is the principle in the project. The materials with texture of modesty, rustic and asymmetry are used as the main substance in the space, trying to create an unrefined and lean atmosphere. Through the peculiarity of imperfection, the inhabitant are led to discern the hidden beauty of the truly excellence and here they can find their pure sanctuary from the turmoil world.

Ant Farm House in Taipei, Taiwan by XRANGE

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

Article source: XRANGE 

Xrange wraps a new layer of 80- 177cm wide by 7m high living spaces around an existing indigenous stone house to create an “extreme” new house of outrageous living proportion.  The newly added programs of pantry, bar, study, library, dog house and bathrooms are new “rooms” averaging about 4m2 in footprint, but with soaring 7m headroom.  The new house becomes a sequence of small narrow vertical spaces that interlock like the spaces within an ant colony.

Article source: Shen Ting Tseng Architects

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.

Hotel Proverbs Taipei in Taiwan by RAY CHEN +PARTNERS ARCHITECTS

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Article source: RAY CHEN +PARTNERS ARCHITECTS

The site of Hotel Proverbs is located at the heart of Taipei City central where the MRT, night market, department stores, public park and densely occupied apartments create a vibrant and busy area 24-7. To take full advantage of – and to mediate – this lively and yet extremely intricate urban condition, the building splits diagonally into two parts: the upper 42 hotel rooms and the lower hotel amenities. The lower part is pushed back from the park side to make space for the trees indigenous to the site. The upper part, on the other hand, is shifted forward to lean into the park while maintaining an accommodating distance from the apartments closely situated behind the hotel.

Beigang Cultural Center in Yunlin, Taiwan by MAYU architects+

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Article source: MAYU architects+ 

Beigang Township is the epicenter for the Taiwanese worshipping of Mazu, a Chinese sea goddess. Therefore, the Beigang Chao-Tien Temple for Mazu and its surrounding form a core area with local historic significance. However, Beigang as well as other cities in the western plain of Taiwan faces the same suburban sprawl, exacerbated by disorderly building development resulting from the lack of a cohesive planning guidance. The project site itself is located at the northwestern corner of the 90-years-old Bei-Chen Elementary School campus, sitting right on the axis of the sprawling expansion.

Thinking Gallery Space in Taipei, Taiwan by Studio In2

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Article source: Studio In2

The Thinking Gallery Space provides rental services for exhibitions, parties, and classes.

Design Concept:

Concretizing abstract thinking enables us to sketch outlines on paper. The orientations of thought are like angles and changes in light and shadow, and different people do not necessarily see details of pictures in the same way. Based on this, we derived a means by which to embody thought and created the Thinking Gallery Space, which allows us to enjoy the thinking process in a tranquil atmosphere.

Historical building contains many strong characteristic of space and living and it expresses the significance of the certain age.
