This contemporary residence in Taipei City moves away from this mundane approach to living room design thanks to the creative folk Alfonso Ideas. The open minimal and inviting living area of this small residence has been divided into two different parts using an internal wall and yet one space effortlessly flows into the next.
Designed by Cheng Franco Arquitectos it is the innovative use of corten steel panels for the upper cantilevered levels that catches your attentions instantly. The steel panels give the holiday home a dynamic colorful and texturally vibrant exterior even as concrete acts as the more stoic counterpart.
Improvising on the idea of the classic holiday cabin in the woods this contemporary vacation home brings together several individual structures to create a comfortable and breezy escape. The sculptural wood and glass exterior of each edifice adds to the overall experience even as a forest filled with strawberry trees and pines provides a cloak of greenery.
Since the couple worked from home incorporating a full-fledged home office that offered privacy and smart functionality was another important part of the home’s design. Built on a tight budget by KEM STUDIO the inviting house uses a white and wood color palette to usher in a sense of harmony even while inviting the outdoors inside.
Moving away from the mundane the new office welcomes both employees and clients with a grand entry where entire staff can come together each morning. A professional library here also showcases the best work of Cox Architecture and is sure to make a big visual impact on anyone new walking in.
