 A Path Amongst Cats

當我們的生活裡有五隻貓的陪伴,居所設計當然得把牠們的活動需求一併納入,只是該如何兼顧人優雅舒適的起居空間呢?

設計師深刻考究人與貓「同居」行為,把握機能規劃的尺度與界限,手執簡潔筆觸勾勒家的模樣,於自然紋理中兼容些東方元素,

回應本案的萬華在地身份認同,以客製化美學完成人及貓的和諧共處空間。

公共區域以貓為主軸,兩面牆各一座結合貓道、跳台和收納功能的量體,運用滑門創造貓嗜於躲藏的隱蔽性。兩側層板橫向延伸,

融於沙發背牆、電視牆的貓道佈局使生活裡自然衍生更多人貓互動,而懸空的鐵件樣式易於清潔之外,亦隨著時間流轉,在屋內產生豐富表情的光影變化。

空間以白色為基底,局部藉木紋材料和擬岩石塗料襯托立面層次,又將東方元素以簡約語彙注入,棗紅色牆體劃分公、私領域製造氛圍轉換,意喻對業主成長背景裡廟宇磚瓦情景的眷戀。紅牆上一枚花窗形成視覺焦點,透過簡單方式傳達強烈的東方印象,也讓貓咪們在客廳玩耍的畫面能從廚房一覽無遺。

主臥室去除多餘牆體,開闊空間尺度也提高收納效能,承續木與白色調並使用風琴簾,從容地把市景變為寢室裡的生活藝術,而無處不在的弧線收邊,則為小空間開拓了置放廣闊胸襟的餘裕。

人們因為愛上貓於是每平方之間有了溫度,在未來等待他們的是,家裡的加倍幸福。


When we live with five cats, the design of the residence certainly must take into account their activity needs.
But how can we include an elegant and comfortable living space for humans? The designer did in-depthresearch on the behavior of humans “living together” with cats, learned about the scales and boundaries of functional planning, outlined the appearance of the home with simple strokes, and incorporated oriental elements in the natural textures to reflect and identify with Wanhua. The customized aesthetics complete the harmonious coexisting space of humans and cats.

Cats are the focal point in the public area as there are large volumes of space on each of the two walls in the public area that integrate catwalks, jumping platforms, and storage areas. Sliding doors are used to create concealment that cats enjoy as the side panels on both sides extend horizontally into the back wall of the sofa,
the catwalk, and the TV wall to naturally create more interaction between humans and cats. The hanging iron components are easy to clean, and create plenty of lighting and shadowing changes within the house.

The space is based on white, and partially borrows wood-grained materials and quasi-rock paint to bring out the depth of the facade, and oriental elements are injected into the design in a simple fashion. The jujube red wall divides the public and private spaces to create a change of atmosphere, and is a reference to the homeowner’s nostalgia of the red temple bricks during their childhood. The stained window on the red wall creates a visual focal point that easily conveys a strong oriental impression, and also allows the cats to be easily seen from the kitchen as they play around in the living room.

In the master bedroom, the redundant walls were removed and the scale of the open space scale also improved storage efficiency. The wood and white color tones were used again with honeycomb shades to easily turn the urban landscape into living art in the bedroom. The ubiquitous arced edges broadened the spatial perception of this small space.

Humans falling in love with cats adds warmth to every inch of this place, and their future home will have double the amount of happiness.
