built on a hillside in hsinchu, taiwan, yuan architects’ ‘house S’ intentionally elevates the living space to provide privacy while offering a comfortable outdoor activity space for families. an undulating wall running through the building defines the exterior and interior, separating the public space from the private.

within taiwanese based firm yuan architects‘ ‘house S’, the wall encircles the master bedroom and children’s room, forming the two main spaces, private and secure. between the public and private spaces on each floor, three staggered terraces provide three different lifestyles and settings, enabling the owner and their children to retain their private spaces but also enjoy enriching interactions.
