希望親友來都能感受到一個放鬆、自在的家。

走進綠蔭鳥鳴的民生社區,當初業主就是喜歡這一帶悠閒的生活步調,而決定在這展開一家三口的新生活。甫踏入屋內,立刻被前屋主留下的粉紅天花板所吸引,雖然已經是20幾年前的裝潢依舊前衛大膽,但在原始屋高不足的情況下,過於強烈的色彩容易讓空間略顯壓迫,因此在了解業主的喜好與需求後,決定將這屋鄰45歲的風情萬種少婦,減齡為另一種清新舒怡的微糖風格。

The Minsheng Community, characterized by its greenery, gentle breezes, singing birds, and leisurely pace of life, were the reasons why the male and female owners of this house decided to start their family here. The house features an attractive pink ceiling decorated by its previous owner, and decorations that remain avant-garde looking despite them being designed over two decades ago. However, because the house has a low ceiling, strong colors imbue the house with a sense of stress. Therefore, the designer had a discussion with the owners to identify their preferences and needs before transforming the 45-year-old house into a fresh and refreshing space.

原先2房2廳1衛的格局,業主希望在有限空間增加使用空間機能,因此將一間衛浴分隔為兩間,並將主臥更衣室劃分為女兒房使用;多增加一房一衛,調整為3房2廳2衛的格局。業主十分重視風水,因此在設計階段,就請風水師給予建議,例如:在玄關前設定一道屏風讓入門形成流順的S形氣場、或是避免前門見後門等建議。而設計師的工作就是了解各種狀況,整合重點需求,並融合在空間裡。

Originally, the house contained two bedrooms, two living rooms, and a bathroom. Because the owners wished to improve the functionalities of the existing space, the designer divided the bathroom into two bathrooms and converted the master bedroom dressing room into a space for the owners’ daughter. The number of bedrooms, living rooms, and bathrooms thus becomes three, two, and two, respectively. Because the owners are also firm believers of feng shui, the designer consulted a feng shui master when designing the house, who suggested that a screen be in place in front of the front door to create a smooth, s-shaped “flow” and to avoid people standing by the front door to see the back door. The designer then designed a space that incorporated the feng shui master’s suggestions and the owners’ needs.

客廳的兩面穀倉門,為整個空間中的亮點,女主人從開始就一直期待有個穀倉櫃可以收理所有生活中的雜物。在材質的選色上,也花費許多心思在找尋接近她心中想要的花色,為了避免因為量體大而顯得厚重,最後選以淡淡粉色的木皮來作為穀倉門的外衣,讓這門面清新淡雅又不失個性。

 

The barn doors on the two sides of the living room accentuate the overall space. The female owner wanted a barn cabinet where she can store miscellaneous things. Therefore, the designer spent a great deal of effort to find barn cabinet materials that matched her preferred color. To prevent dark colors from making the space look “overly heavy,” light-colored veneer was utilized as the covers of the barn doors, evoking a sense of freshness, elegance, and character.

書房、餐廳是一家人最常窩聚的區域:爸爸在廚房料理著、媽媽在餐桌上悠閒的看看書滑滑手機、女兒在書房邊畫畫邊聞香,等著用餐時刻到來。每個人都有著專屬於自己的喜好角落,也能知道對方的動態,互相陪伴著。男主人最喜歡窩在廚房為來訪親友準備精心料理,透過玻璃窗能與桌前的家人互動,儘管只有一個人的廚房也能因為外面的快樂而不顯寂寞。

 

The study room and kitchen are where the family spends most of its time: It is common to see the father cooking in the kitchen, the mother sitting by the kitchen table reading a book or using her cellphone, and the daughter drawing in the study room waiting for her meals. Everyone has their own favorite spots and can see and be with each other at all times. The father enjoys preparing meals in the kitchen for visiting relatives and friends. The installation of a glass window allows him to see and interact with his family, creating a sense of company when he is alone in the kitchen.

經常旅居國外的業主一家,每個人對於空間都有自己的一套想法:男主人常體驗各式精品旅館,對於細節很在乎、女主人平時喜好吸收居家設計資訊,掌握家中的整體氛圍、小女兒有濃厚的藝術興趣,家中擺的所有畫作皆出自於她的巧手。因此一家人就常常與設計師直接工地現場溝通討論,這方面就很考驗設計師的臨場應變,除了要滿足業主的喜好需求,也要考量是否會影響整體配置。

This family often travels abroad, and all of them have their ideas about how to decorate spaces. The male owner spends a lot of time in boutique hotels and is attentive to detail; the female owner loves to collect home design information and manages the overall atmosphere of the house; and the daughter is an artistic aficionado who designs all the paintings found in the house. Therefore, the family often communicates their ideas with the designer on site, challenging the designer’s ability to improvise and satisfy the clients’ preferences while maintaining the overall balance.

男主人喜好下廚分享料理,希望能一邊在舒適廚房發揮廚藝、一邊透過玻璃窗景看到親友們享受料理的愉悅氣氛。

The male owner loves to cook; he enjoys putting his cooking skills to use in the kitchen while reveling in the view (via the glass window) of his family and friends savoring the food.

在通往臥室的道路上,以帶有凹凸紋路的鋼刷木皮作為牆面的質感,並悄悄的隱藏了兩扇衛浴門,

讓空間不會被門片分割視覺。

On the way to the bedroom, steel brush veneer walls with rugged patterns were installed, and two bathroom doors were quietly hidden to prevent the four doors from disrupting the view of the corridor.

浴室雖小,卻精緻小巧。粉紅色的六角花磚是特地為女兒所挑選;

並以同款不同色的復古磨石子磚來呈現空間主題性:男女生的使用劃分。

The bathroom is small but delicate. The pink hexagonal tiles were chosen for the daughter. Vintage terrazzo tiles of the same type but varying colors were used to distinguish the space into that for male and female users.

女主人淺眠、易被聲音燈光打擾,希望臥室是個放鬆又沉靜的空間。

我們以奶茶色搭配梧桐木床頭板做為臥室的主色調,營造暖軟放鬆的休憩氛圍。

The female owner is a light sleeper and is easily woken up by sounds and lights. Thus, she wishes to have a bedroom that is quiet and relaxing. Accordingly, the designer used a milk tea-colored setting combined with a Chinese parasol tree-made headboard to imbue the bedroom with a warm and relaxing ambiance.

原本為主臥更衣室的空間,改為女兒房。

小主人為自己的臥室挑選了紫色系的搭配,呈現出小女生堅持的浪漫。

每個週末固定的親友聚會,常常成群的大朋友、小朋友來訪。大人們配著紅酒、微醺放鬆的聊天,另一團的小孩則時而臥坐客廳看卡通、時而奔跑玩捉迷藏,又常常拉起書房的玻璃隔間門,立即與爸媽區隔又能不被打擾的小天地。整個公共空間就是這個家最重要的核心;看著改造後的老公寓,業主迫不急待邀請親友們來訪,「大家都很喜歡這個放鬆又溫馨的空間,已經成為了朋友固定聚會的招待所了」,而這也是他們一家最喜歡宅在家裡的原因。

Every weekend, the family’s relatives and friends gather at the house. The grownups have relaxing conversations while sipping red wine, whereas the children watch cartoons in the living room or play hide and seek. The children sometimes close the study room glass door, offering them their own little space. The public space is the core that ties the family together. After seeing the transformation, the owners cannot wait to invite their friends and relatives to come over. “Everyone loves this warm and relaxing space, which has become a regular gathering place for our friends and relatives,” said the owners. This is also the reason why they usually stay home.
