ChArchiLab — Glimmering White Cube — Kaohsiung, Taiwan
The interior avoids unneeded ornaments; whereas, exterior was renovated by cement and cladded with perforated metals, building up translucent contrast between solid and see-through material. The perforated facade brings more daylighting and creates blurry yet inviting shadow from outer surrounding, eliminating visual barricades among vertical stores. This old house becomes a new, flexible, light-weight, carrier to cater for unknown activities after the overhaul.
“Glimmering White Cube” by ChArchiLab is one of the finalists for Golden Pin Design Award 2020 in Spatial Design, Residential Space Category.
