【TID Award】Wandering Boundaries
(2014 TID Award of Residential Space)
I 環境 CONTEXT
Located at the east side of Tamsui River in Taipei, the apartment facing the stunning river-view an
d iconic Guandu Bridge.
In defining the new use of space, in accordance with the client's needs, we try to maximize the entering of daylight and view and the visual interrelationships between the different parts of the house, each with its own identity.
II 面向 ORIENTATION
The aim was to give the occupant various possibilities of space, to create diversity inside the apartment as well as to enable the clients to enjoy the view of the surroundings where they live.
The striped glass of the sliding partition allows light to filter while at the same time provides some privacy for the library/piano room.
It is a compact apartment with multifunctional elements to provide flexibility and adaptability to different needs, in other words, a 'mini-space' with a 'maxi-functionality' + 'maxi-view'.
III 空間彈性 FLEXIBILITY
In order to allow the occupants to live with greater freedom within a limited floor area, we connect and overlay the various places to create the whole of the dwelling.
The open-plan layout also allows for better cross-ventilation through the apartment.
IV 音樂與閱讀 MUSIC VS READING
業主是一對年輕夫妻，丈夫是醫生，妻子是音樂教師，因職業而產生的分享與差異可以在空間中體會。The rotatable TV column changes the orientation of the space according to the number of occupants and the function/activities of the room.
V 餐食 CUISINE
廚房動作可流入開放的餐廳／起居區，夫妻互動不受限於空間。在此以綠色代表清新。The opaque sliding partition behind the chalkboard act as the 'invisible wall' throughout our planning, is a wide and bright shared area which becomes a gentle buffer between spaces, and also a link between husband(dentist/books) and wife (pianist/piano).
VI 顏色 COLOURS
The simple, natural and affordable materials such as raw brick, steel, plywood and formica are designed to enhance the sense of space in the apartment and also reduce costs.
Low-cost materials have also been used in the bathroom, where inexpensive mosaic tiles are arranged in different colors to give the two bathrooms a more bespoke look.
In order to create accents, colors is used in different spaces.
- GRAY for living : Stability/ Security
- BLUE for bedroom : Peace/ Tranquility/ Sincerity/ Affection
- RED for powder room : Passion/ energetic
- BLACK for bathroom : Sophistication
- GREEN for kitchen : Freshness
