Another striking feature of the house is the way that it blends a dash of Asian minimalism with modernity as the simple wooden decor in the living area coupled with furniture salvaged from the homeowner’s old residence creates a relaxing stylish atmosphere.
If you are one of those many fans who spends countless hours in an entirely different universe as you explore its many quirks and characters then this amazing home in Taipei will surely leave you spellbound.
The dark street façade of the remodeled house stands out visually from the homes that surround it and gives it a distinct identity. Step in further and this idea of exclusivity is reinforced by a living room where the exposed concrete fireplace and the mirror on the mantel combine to create an artistic focal point.
Add to it the fact that the room is largely devoid of permanent fixtures and rigid features and it can be easily turned into an additional family room home office or even a guest space a few years down the line.
On the lower level of the house one finds the living area along with the kitchen dining space and a Zen-style nook next to the staircase that also holds an indoor tree. Additional bedrooms and storage spaces make up the rear part of the ground floor with the first floor holding the master bedroom and study.
The kids’ rooms are no different with custom wall creations that draw inspiration from the Millennium Falcon driver cockpit even as the wardrobes blend in with the overall theme. No matter where you turn it is hard if not impossible to get away from the dominant theme of this fascinating apartment. And while it might not be everyone’s cup of tea it surely transports you into another universe!
On the lowest level one sees the living space / TV room that creates a vivacious and fun atmosphere with its semi-industrial style and iconic décor additions like the Wegner’s Papa Bear Chair.
