Sitting at the beautiful Shingdian Riverside, this newly-built house is located at Jonghe, Taipei, Taiwan. The owners are a young couple and their two smart and active boys. As soon as you enter the Japanese style porch, you will come into sight of the brilliant lights and vision throwing through the French windows.

Moving forward, the thick and heavy wooden building volume at the end of the living room molds the feeling of cladding which not only increases the visual depth but also has the function of space distinction.
The denim blue back walls in the dining room assimilate into the natural building materials such as wooden material and wooden skin while turning to the dining table. You will not miss the beautiful scenery outside the window even if you are against the window with the large gray mirror is interspersed with the whole denim blue.
The open space can be divided into a living room, dining room, and kitchen island. Furthermore, the TV storage wooden box added iron level boards help increase the details, and it is consistent with the iron bookcase behind the back wall of the sofa. The open wooden bookcase embedded with iron construction decreases the sense of oppression and enlarges the space depth. The handmade walnut tables and chairs brought out with denim blue in the dining room increases the leisurely but active atmosphere. The kitchen island clad with the wooden building volume accommodates the entrances of a children’s room and the master bedroom. It also implies the distinction of privacy. This house is not spacious.
