Jade is a residence built in Taipei (Taiwan), which eclectically combines organic, almost rural features, with simplicity and highly-technological modern architecture. The apartment of 176 sq meters is projected by Ryan Lai Architects studio.
The main purpose of its architects was to create the feeling of a spacious house. The space division follows a strict concept. The amount of complicated lines is minimized. Certain interior elements seem attractive at a distant glance and are truly enjoyable from a closer look; such effect was achieved due to the use of highly-qualitative materials.
The project is implemented with health concerns of the owners; this resulted in a range of peculiarities. First of all, only ecological materials were used at construction. Wooden elements, as well as types of glue used have low formaldehyde concentration. The walls are made of architectural concrete and covered with special paint of anti-bacterial and anti-mildew effect. Apart from that, the ventilation system with heat recuperation supports good air quality and suppresses noise.
However, the most important feature of this apartment is its equipment with a Smart home system, enabling to manage the apartment in one finger touch. All you need is just to use a smartphone or a tablet and adjust the light, curtains, air conditioning, video control system, home cinema etc.
These high technologies meet with features, referring to the Asian location of the house; they reflect in use of organic materials, rural furniture items and general Eastern style of certain design elements.
