The architects dug out the hillside to create a stepped terrain to the home, situated on the eastern seaboard of Taiwan facing the ocean. It’s called A’tolan House, meaning”a place with many rocks” from the regional native language.
The residence follows the shape of the coastline and bends in the western end to face towards the ocean, with large expanses of glazing that offer residents views of the ocean. A pair of big stone steps leads from the top level down five meters into a covered courtyard plus dining room using a thick wall clad in local stones cutting to the space. The extensive usage of local timber and stone gives the home a very fashionable and textural appearance.
The kitchen is put on the opposing side of this wall, together with folding glass doors that permit air to flow freely throughout the residence. Additionally they open onto a big terrace, intended for yoga and star-gazing. Does not it seem like a fantasy?
Situated at the bent end of the home, that the master bedroom features a en-suite bathroom using a skylit shower. It opens with a glazed door and wall into an outdoor deck with a small circular tub for bathing.
At the bottom level, the stone wall provides the backdrop for your south-facing infinity pool and big garden. A waterfall projects out of the top of the walls and flows to the pool. This home actually reminds of vacation heaven, which you won’t need to leave!
