A Taste of Academic Family Life

Entry Description

This department is designed for a couple with two children. The husband is an engineer of Academia Sinica--the highest academic institution in Taiwan. This region is known for its rainy weather. The living room and bedrooms thus are made sure to face the sunny side for absorbing enough sunshine. Since the husband is a researcher, simple but elegant style is preferred. Gray is therefore the main color designed for soothing each family member’s mind. Also, marble stones, bronze and iron are applied to enhance simplicity and reconcile the complex color of wood.
Opposed to the serenity of the couple’s bedroom, the children’s room is full of colorful paintings on the furniture, interacting with and delight the calm atmosphere. The children have various kinds of toys and the couple has tons of books. The semi-open storage space is then designed for their convenience, and objects are allocated with using frequency.
