This is a renovation project of an old lane house located at the old neighborhood in Hsinchu, Taiwan.

The narrow but long site building is a common typology in Taiwan(Qi LO), this kind of typology often results in narrow spatial experience and lack of natural sunlight. The building which is often cut by the stairs and rooms have no connections between each other.

Our design goal is clear, creating mixture of natural sunlight and artificial lightning to have a cozy ambience via the engagement of using natural material ,mirrors and angles of ceilings for re-directing the light.

Opening up unnecessary division walls of the common area and lightning up the stairs turning the original back of the house to a vivid fluid space which creates the family have more interaction at the common spaces.
