Honeycomb House

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
In the bustling city of Taipei, a quiet section of Ren Ai Road is discovered between 2 side streets measuring 4 and 6 meters wide respectively. On this tranquil side street is a building designed with abundance of natural light and beauty. Echoing the hexagonal shape of a honeycomb structure, a layer of 25cm thick metal sinks between the interior and exterior. The eco-friendly skin provides a cooling shade, yet allows enough light to seep through.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The façade imparts a smooth surface, except for the 4 terraces protruding into the air as if breathing for the building. Depth is revealed as layers of space emerge. The views from inside are framed images of a beautiful dance between shadow and light.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Urban Context

CHALLENGE:
Unfolding is the theme of the design. A spacious terrace is assigned for each floor to enable both space and spirit to extend beyond the physical enclosure to integrate with the environment. Home becomes more than a functional space, but a sanctuary where the soul is comforted by the caress of nature.
