這是ㄧ對長年旅居美國多年的夫妻回鄉定居的住所. 設計上企圖融合他們成長背景裡的”東方內涵”與” 西方精神”特質, 提供一處能反應屋主獨特性與同時兼具西方現代大器與東方內斂平衡特質的居住空間. 除了生活上必要的收納與櫃體外, 我們將牆面盡量留白, 讓使用者可以填入他們的”生活元素”, 他們多年來收藏的紀念品, 畫, 照片, 傢俱..生活的點滴, 都是空間中最獨一無二的質感, 他們用最獨特, 最個人化的生活模式讓空間變成一個有靈魂的家.住宅是生活的場景,居住者是場景裡的主角, 用他們的生命構築出一個完整的”家”.
This residence belongs to a couple that relocated back to their hometown after spending many years in the United States. Its design is an attempt to mix the “Eastern connotations” from their upbringing together with traits derived from the “Western spirit”, resulting in a living space that reflects the individuality of the owners. At the same time, it combines Western modern mastery with the distinguished characteristics of Eastern inner-balance. Aside from essential drawers and cabinets, we tried to leave the walls as blank as possible, allowing users to fill them with their own “life elements” collected over many years: souvenirs, paintings, photos, furniture… fragments of life. They all form a most unique texture to a living space – using elements from distinct and personal lifestyles to transform a space into a house with its own soul. A house serves as the scene of life, while its residents are protagonists who use their lives to build a complete “home”.
本住宅位於充滿陽光與熱情的南台灣, 室內的每個主要空間裡都可以接處到一個陽台, 露臺或是天井, 所以設計透過陽臺, 露臺與挑空作為室內外光線與景觀綠意的中介過濾空間, 將外面強烈的光線過濾成柔和的光漫射入室內的同時也帶進景觀的自然綠意. 室內空間則透過柔軟的曲牆去與光線互動, 捕捉出每天不同時刻的細微多變的光線表情, 讓室內的氛圍可以隨著外面的天候變化而富有生命. 同時也是串連室內與室外空間的主要元素, 透過律動的牆面, 天花板與燈光去在營造出室內的開放性與寬廣度並引導空間由內而外, 由外而內的延伸與結合, 讓生活融入自然, 讓活動跨出室內. 最後透過深淺不同的牆面的深淺去呼應生活空間不同的屬性並創造出多元而豐富的空間經驗, 讓居住者可以隨著不同的心情在房子裡找到屬於自己的角落.
This residence is located in the warm, sun-kissed region of southern Taiwan. In the interior, every main room is connected to a balcony, terrace, or patio. This design creates intermediary filtration spaces between indoor/outdoor light and the green areas through its balconies, terraces, and atriums. This filters the strong sunrays coming from the outside into a soft light, which diffuses itself into the rooms. Light is also simultaneously directed into the natural green landscape areas. The interior interacts with light through the soft, curved walls. Each day at different hours, slightly different expressions of light are captured, changing the indoor atmosphere according to the weather and making it become alive. These walls also connect the main elements to the interior and exterior spaces. Through the rhythmical walls, ceiling and lighting, an internal sense of openness and breadth is created, guiding the space from inside-out. Outside-in extensions and combinations blend life with nature, making it possible to conduct daily activities by stepping outside. Finally, the depth obtained by the differently shaded walls echoes the different properties within the living space, creating a diversified and rich spatial experience. As a result, the occupants are able to select and settle in their own corner of the house according to their mood at that moment.
