Located in the heart of bustling Taipei, the designer named the space "Mellow House". Following the softness of the word, the space is blurred with low saturated earth tones, and the furniture bounces lightly like pastel-colored blocks, bringing a soft and comfortable feeling when you open the door.
The space is picturesque, with earth tones rendering the open living and dining rooms, and continuing along the same color floor to the semi-open study and kitchen behind the glass tile wall, and then entering the hallway from the kitchen to see the floor-to-ceiling wall. However, the beauty of the same color also creates a design challenge for the designers. The walls, bookcase surfaces, kitchen cabinets and flooring are all seemingly the same color, but in fact, they are made from different materials with the same color adjustment. For example, the concrete flooring in the living room has been color-matched for consistency, while the kitchen countertop and backsplash are made of Spanish selite to show the texture of the stone in the same way. When the sun rises in the east, the diverse textures of the materials are illuminated by the sunlight, just like the mottled brushstrokes of an oil painting with charming light and shadow.
In the painting, there is a six-meter long raw concrete bench in the foyer, which is a shoe bench and a functional low cabinet for audio-visual entertainment. The long geometric sculptural body with limited fulcrums shows the structural tension, and also the consistent color technique in the segmented pre-cast high-strength cement volume makes the Red River Clay of Pantone System color sample the focus of attention in the painting. In the corridor, an open doorway reveals a blue bathroom space with a bold and avant-garde touch. The contrast between the light and dark colors is reflected in the glass tiles, adding a layer of brightness and airiness.
When the earthy color enters the sunny master bedroom, there is room between the dark green Ash wood closet and the bedside, creating a ceremonial atmosphere of walking into the pseudo-dressing room, and at this time, an infinite rhythmical cycle is coiled. The hallway continues to wind around the kitchen, study, living room and dining room. The couple and their husky roam freely in the quiet and sometimes lively space, creating their own pace of living in the crowded urban environment, spacious and comfortable, relaxed and at ease.
油畫中，在玄關有著一座長達六米的清水模長凳，是穿鞋凳，也是視聽娛樂的機能矮櫃，悠長幾何雕塑體，以有限支點展現結構張力，也在分段預鑄的高強度水泥量體發揮顏色一致的嫻熟工法，使Pantone 系統色票的Red River Clay，成為畫中引人凝視的焦點。而廊道中，一隅開啟的門片，展示出湛藍有致的衛浴空間，遍地柔和間忽有大膽前衛刺激了視覺感官，透過大面積單色調突顯單點跳色的構圖，亮暗色塊的對比在玻璃磚透映下，增添了一層清亮的空氣感。
