View Slideshow

The owners of this apartment wanted a place that their children could run around and play and have fun so they hired HAO Interior Design to make it happen. Located in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan, this residence, named Outer Space for Kids, was designed with a simple, Japanese feel but they also incorporated elements the children would enjoy.

A long cabinet for toys flows from the living room past the kitchen and to the front door and it pops in a bright turquoise color against the concrete walls. Stone- and log-like pillows give the kids a place to sit and play.

Overall, the large, open living space is kept clean and minimal with concrete, wood, and metal being the primary material choices.

If they want, they can close off part of the living area to act as a playroom or to hide toys when guests come over.
