內景 + 天井
This is a proposal for a 2nd generation house of a 5 person family in Changhua, Taiwan. The site is located on the roof of an existing one storey factory building.
The initial idea here is to create a contemporary Chinese courtyard house with a "回"shaped box. This is a layout which has individual living units and shared family spaces, they are connected by a looped corridor and separated by small light wells.
"Sky Voids" are distributed on the corner of the building to provide natural lighting and ventilation. It is designed as individual small courtyards.
"Inn Vista" is the idea of creating internal views. Big glazing is designed to face the central courtyard and "Sky Voids which crates internal views looking into the garden.
It is a project we are trying to re-define what a modern Chinese courtyard house can be? How space can be divided individually but also strongly connected.
