Residence Wang by KC Design Studio
Located in Taipei, Taiwan, this inspiring apartment has been recently designed by KC Design Studio for a young couple with a 2 year old.
The project is for a young couple with a two-year-old child. The owner has lived in the foreign country for a long time, having the special feeling for the neighborhood of Xindian River, where he used to live in the childhood. So he chooses Xindian District as the home for them and their child.
In the space of nearly 125 square meters and three meters high, the first to overcome is the over-low steel girder and main pipe. So for the design of the ceiling, we adopt the concept of “deconstruction” to separate the steel girder and ceiling so that either can exert its function independently. The arc technique of the ceiling will elevate the space. The low point of the arc can be equipped with the solid facilities.
The setting of the style is based on the modern elements favored by the male owner and the natural elements favored by the female owner. The difference in style brings us a lot of inspirations. Like “deconstruction,” different styles can exist separately. We make the ceiling, the wall, and the floor independent and define the fields with different materials. For example, different floor materials are used in the living room and the bedroom while the wall material connects the whole space to lower the independent feeling. In the open space, we create the field spirit. With the technique of extension, the floor is extended to the wall, and the wall is extended to the ceiling to create the space integration and the visual tension.
