Natural Materials + Neutral Colors Create Tranquil Apartment in Taiwan

Looking out to the city of Qinpu, Residence W is a new design by fws_work for an airline pilot who spends most of his time traveling. As a result, he longed for a place of respite in between trips. To make that happen, fws_work created a warm, tranquil environment through the use of natural materials and neutral colors.

Plastered walls and oak are the base of the design with elements of woven cane, ribbed glass, encaustic ceramic tiles, and linen furnishings layered in. Custom cabinetry throughout elevates each space with its high-end craftsmanship.

A half wall acts as a divider and desk between the living room and reading area. A built-in bookcase offers plenty of storage for books and object found while traveling. The original structural beam has been clad in oak panels to disguise it while it also acts as a visual separator between the areas of relaxation and action.
