Decorating an old house into a modern home in Taipei
The house is old, the owner wants to renovate it in a modern home style. The request of the homeowner is to arrange functional areas effectively, making the most of the area. In this case, the hallway is not only the hallway, but also the passageway of the kitchen and restaurant. Only by integrating space and overlapping functions can maximum floor efficiency be achieved.
Home design ideas
Originally the house was used as a warehouse space, 15 square meters was cut into 3 rooms. In blocks of roughly equal size, the composition is broken and the motion lines are rigid. Unable to work, when in use, the cover door was suddenly stuck in the middle, causing the left and right sides to have no priority and causing the space order to fall into chaos.
After comprehensive observation and analysis, the architect came up with home design ideas: the position of the door was adjusted to the right to remove all visible obstructions, and a large public area. widely opened. Warm wood material is used as the main theme and hexagonal stone tiles are inferred from it as a medium, and a zigzag border is used to blur the square.
Living room design
The living room design idea is to use the wall to separate the living room and the kitchen from each other, but it is closely connected, borrowing space from the meal preparation cabinet in a synchronous manner. So the audio and video cables are invisible, the TV is hidden inside to reduce internal and external collisions and smooth the lines of the facade.
The display shelves of one side are moved in order, accompanied by the light of the glass so that the owner's pottery can be displayed in an orderly manner, and also suggest the arrangement. Neutral gray tones are used to soften the cold and warm color temperatures, and the wood color of the handrails is used to design the scene coherently. Present a coordinated picture with the right shades.
The couple often invites friends over to their home and are used to making light meals and making coffee. They don't have too many large pots, only professional coffee making equipment and collectible cups and plates. The type of kitchen utensil that suits the cooking style and the height of the low wall is also determined by the scale of the refrigerator.
A window opens to follow the sink, daylight and light perspective lines are utilized to make cooking time easy and enjoyable. A wooden pedestal is extended along the dishwasher to naturally increase the temperature in the room, and the silicon steel stone countertop synchronizes horizontally., It is not only a pedestal for food preparation but also a bar pedestal. .
Expand the size of the bathroom but also put the conventional thinking aside, instead of taking up the space of the bathroom cabinet, instead use a wooden sink that makes storage not reduced but also become more skillful. The use of movable furniture can have a high degree of flexibility.
Also build mirror cabinets along the façade to cover the window locations, expand the pedestal for storage purposes, and eliminate the backside configuration. Even if the cabinet door is closed, the air can still be brought into the room, and the space will not be lost through the combined method. At that time, the stone pattern tiles used herringbone writing to form a metaphor for the wooden tone of the public domain, forming a consistent style.
The whole room uses recessed lights as the universal light source, with 4000K natural light surrounding, soft and non-glare light, two retro glass chandeliers are hung consecutively above the bar. Light is created through light and transparent materials, and beautiful light and shadows are reflected through the texture.
