Taipei Open Flat – Wood, Redbrick, and Concrete for a German Lifestyle

Taipei Open Flat - Wood Beams, Redbrick, and Concrete for a German Lifestyle

This Taipei Open Flat was designed by KC Design Studio for a young German owner.

Project description: Located in East District, Taipei City, this open flat case contains 120 m2 area for use. Because there are many buildings in the neighborhood, a lot of noise, and lack of beautiful natural scenery. However, the owner of the residence hopes to live at home at the pace of having a vacation at the spare time of his (her) work.

The key point of the case is to break the enclosed separation in traditional interior design and promote the relation between each area openly. In this way, people’s interaction in the space can be enhanced. The space is mainly designed in open areas without different functions but in similar styles because it not only makes the users to use the limited space without contradiction but also helps them to feel the atmosphere of other open areas while dining in the dining room. The space would look larger and freer. Their relation to “home” will be more and more intimate.

The style and tonality of the space is determined by the user’s preference. The owner comes from Koln, Germany. It is difficult for him to find an environment and atmosphere in Taipei similar with those in his hometown. We attempts to help the owner feel some elements from his hometown. Therefore, we use wood beams, redbrick, and concrete etc. The owner also particularly cares about the view outside the window. Due to the disadvantage of the environment, we plan for placing a lot of plants at the balcony and fusing it with mixed rural styles in modern techniques.
