This is a place for family to rest peacefully, and also a boutique hotel for travelers to relax and revolve.
Green mountains and clear waters form the backdrop
The building is situated in Taitung’s Chishang County. The building is an energy-saving and eco-friendly wooden structure with low volume, low building structure, and a low density configuration. It is surrounded by green mountains and lush, rice paddies.
Low-density building configuration
The building has an atrium in the middle, connecting the private residential area and the public area. Originally, the private residential area was located outside the building’s base, serving as the boundary between the base and the main road. Thus, the public living and dining space was located in the interior of the building, and a turn down the hall into the interior prepared one for the joy and relaxation of returning home.
Atrium as the center of the home
The atrium, which is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass windows, is not only the boundary between the public and private spheres, but also the center of the home's vision and spirit, so that every corner of the home can feel the changes of the sky, greenery and the four seasons. The attic-shaped moving line of the atrium allows all the activities of the home to orbit around this center, and the mind is constantly washed and calmed by the vacant atrium.
Neighborhood and environment - a friendly relationship
Due to the sliding glass doors in the living room, the vestibule is combined with the living room, which becomes a place to host guests for a meal, have a family breakfast, or conduct other activities in this flexible space. Moreover, for friendly neighborhood relations, around the corner of the vestibule, there is a stone bench under the tree that welcomes outsiders visiting Chishang to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea.
After dinner, family or guests can take the stairs in the backyard to go to the 2nd floor’s roof terrace. This becomes a gathering place where the family and guests can gaze at the starry sky, camp outside, or do exercise or yoga in the morning.
