This project took an overhaul of a residential townhouse built in the 1960s. The obsolete house is situated in a congested street alley of Kaohsiung city, whose proximity to miscellaneous styles of houses, transforming into a pure white and semi-transparent form, imbued with open and freely inviting vibes, breaking the boundaries between residents and the building. The interior is without unneeded ornaments; whereas, perforated aluminum plates grafts on the exterior, eliminating visual blockages. This old house becomes a new, flexible, light-weight, carrier to cater for unexplored activities.
