hybrid living prototype unveils multiple-in-one space in taiwanese residence

‘one / split house’ by air studio is an interior renovation for a photographer’s residence in taiwan, serving as a hybrid living prototype that responds to an emerging lifestyle. coexisting both shared yet individual spaces, the unconventional layout of the dwelling provides a new interpretation and perception of a living domain. furthermore, a pure material palette dominates the interior adding a minimalistic aesthetic.hybrid living prototype unveils multiple-in-one space in taiwanese residenceall images courtesy of ar-her kuo

focal point

 

 

air studio‘s concept design testifies multiple-in-one space while drawing from camera diaphragms; a set of diverging frames are arrayed along a polarized space tensioned between a neutral grey photography room and a warm wooden bedroom. various functions are sandwiched in-between while strongly adhered to the overall unified space. juxtaposing frames and pockets heighten the walk-through experience with a rhythm of light and shadow.hybrid living prototype unveils multiple-in-one space in taiwanese residence
continuity

 

 

living needs such as work station, pantry, storage all are packed in a row while adhering to an overall space with intangible boundaries. in contrast to the traditional rowhouses that are fragmented and brutally interrupted by a central circulation core, the focal point of this project is an open plan – unified yet flexible with free circulation around living needs.hybrid living prototype unveils multiple-in-one space in taiwanese residence
shared yet individual

 

 

spaces in contemporary society are increasingly observed as shared rather than separated. the design emphasizes collectiveness in an attempt to break physical boundaries while creating individual places within a bigger realm. in this pandemic era, living and working are no longer distinctive while ‘working from home’ becomes a familiar phenomenon all over the globe.hybrid living prototype unveils multiple-in-one space in taiwanese residence
