Revisit nostalgia and relive the memories of the good old days
A Moody Loft Apartment in Taiwan Filled With Stories of the Past
By Fei W.
Those who like to reminisce about the good old days always have an affinity for vintage things that stand the test of time. Not only do they retain the beauty of the past, but they also pass on stories of the generations before to the future.
People who like to collect vintage objects have an old soul in their bones. The trajectory of the years left a trace of history on those objects, and form an irreplaceable mark of the memories and stories they hold. Homeowners who like to collect antiques usually hope to integrate these objects into their daily life. In particular, this residential house in Zhubei was redesigned for that purpose. The original 1,065 sq ft space was divided into three bedrooms, two living areas, a multi-functional rest area, and a Japanese-style room.
As the owner hopes to have an open space where he can move freely, designer director You Junde expanded the public area without traditional brick walls as partitions. The arrangement of nostalgic furniture and sliding doors makes the space feel more free-flowing. Plants are also used to soften the rigid space. Although the overall space is dominated by a muted dark grey, the addition of greenery and furniture made of leather and old logs plays well with the light and shadow, making the space more gentle, quiet, homely. Once you step into the house, you can feel the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.
