This apartment is designed for a young bachelor, located next to the largest central park in Taipei, Daan Forest Park.
The designer believes that true luxury not only speaks from the visible space but also reflects on interests, habits, collections, and art. Especially, a unique bespoke dining-bar design to be used as both table and a bar for a more casual dining experience. A custom wine cabinet with tinted black hairline metal finishes in the breakfast kitchen shows his wine-tasting hobby during the day. When night comes, the bespoke pendant light illuminates the kitchen island and the hidden whisky bar behind the fine leather panel opens up a luxury home bar with low ambient lighting for a chilled environment.
Life is all about layers of time, space, and stories and they are often diverse in characteristics. The designer transforms these characteristics through materials and finishes such as wood veneer, seamed leather, and tinted metal, to create this unit designed for a modern fashion get-away man cave for the client.
