This case is a 40-ping pre-owned house located in Taipei City that is now rebuilt. Using a T-shape as the base of public traffic flow planning, the sunlight from both sides of the windows has outlined a progressive space depth. At the same time, the designer applied the open-ended designing method and the cohesion ratio of different materials that combine light and shadow gradients to achieve a smooth and free traffic flow while connecting emotions from both sides. To improve the original low ceiling that caused visual pressure, the designer “opened up” the ceiling area using oil painting-like special paints as the main body of the structure.
