Stylish Apartment In Taipei Designed by Ganna Design

Chorus is a residential project completed by Ganna Design in 2014. The stylish apartment in Taipei City, Taiwan is described as a familiar space, full of memories, yet with a happy new look. Once you enter, you are greeted by a ceiling height of three meters, setting the tone for a spacious tiny home. This thirty-year old house with mezzanine was the place where one of the inhabitants enjoyed beautiful years of childhood, so it was important to preserve these memories, but conduct a functional process of upgrading as well. The color palette is minimalist and helps create the feeling of a sizable home. White walls and furniture enlarge the rooms, while adding a glimpse of elegance. Read More

The original brick walls that move form the outside in, The wood slatted ceilings and walls go glass are just some of my favorite elements. The volumes or white and black parts of the house create a nice juxtaposition in color and volume. Read More

Mid century apartment by Stirling & Gowan

This mid century apartment by Stirling & Gowan designed in the 50’s is a nice mid century living space on a smaller scale. I think design choices the owners have made are quite smart. I don’t typically like smaller spaces as I feel that part of mid century is openness but I will have to make an acceptation here.

The apartment moves and flows nicely from the pictures. Read More
