The program includes a coffee shop on the first floor, a design studio on the second, and the spaces for the reception, display, and executive’s office. We design 3 points : 1. Let the Tree Dictates the Opening. 2. Transfigure the metal roof culture in Taiwan and enclose the sky that belongs to the house. 3.Coffee Shop in an Office. The six-meter tall, single-pitch metal roof harbors the open balcony while providing a new facade with a large opening for the tree to grow tall. The boughs invite the birds, the breeze, as well as different colors of sunlight into the house. The view outward from inside the house frames and reinterprets the cacophony of the urban landscape with new meanings. The staircase expresses the sense of movement that leads to the third floor, where a grey stucco wall extends from the interior and connects the metal roof and grating outside. The designer infuses the sense of space with the painterly technique of ink marks on the wall and tiles of the grey/blue color scheme. The quality of the wooden ceiling, industrial steel-panel on the floor, and red furniture compose a painting with the layering of pigments and strokes.
