Home after developing / Interior Architecture Design

Home after developing
Home after developing

San-ho-yuan was the archetype of home for Taiwanese. In agricultural societies, the whole family used to live under the same roof. However, as the industrial structure started to change, young people tend to leave for another city to pursue better jobs. Spacious home is unsuitable for the few members left to utilize and stay in.
Last era, home, a place where children are cultivated in order to pursue better future, was once a place pushing families outward. The meaning of home has narrowed down, and was eventually condensed. Thus, the core value of home is turned into: waiting—waiting for families to come back.
