Modest materials, open layouts and the play of lights give this apartment an understated elegance.
Designed by Nest Space Design, the 1,948-square-foot apartment in Taipei blends in the tranquil nature scenery to carve out an abode that the owners yearns for. The space is devised based on the concept of a landscape cloaked by verdant mountains and forests, layered with natural and warm stone and wood.
Against a backdrop of natural light and shadow, the absence of concrete walls links up various public spaces: the dining areas, kitchens and study rooms altogether create a cosy atmosphere as if enveloped in nature.
The design team devotes attention to every minutia. The four-meter-long porch foyer area, for instance, provides the residents with abundant space while putting on and taking off their shoes. Combined with the commodious living room that has a fireplace, it also injects a warm and intimate accent into the dwelling.
Enter the private area and study. The area maintains the natural setting of the public space, using light-coloured wood to build a calming ambience. Coupled with a sluggish couch area and a storage system, the bedroom and study double as a flexible field that can accommodate a range of activities – think reading by the window while the warm sunshine shimmers from outside the windows or attending to work at the desk without the disturbance of the outside world.
