The base is located in Taiwan. It is a display showroom for few brands of furniture. It includes furniture display area and service space. Designer deigns the space base on the idea of emphasizing the value of products, so that the expressions of color tone and atmosphere are cold to make customers have better feeling toward vision and sense of touch on products. Office area is designed between two exhibition areas, the rare construction material- U shape glass shows the coherence of two spaces. Half penetrated decoration material is used to describe the change of future indirectly. Architectural concrete wall is selected to express cold tone on the wall extended from the first floor to the second floor on the left side. Aluminum grille goes through two floors as the integration material for the space. Linear grille covers beams and pillars and builds a completed face, so that the space is more extended. Leading the circulation by color pattern generates the direction in a space. Using stone material as conversion and stone floor as extension to height brings people an upward ramp platform. The platform works as the staircase turret as well as the living area, which can decrease the height of the stair landing and the physiological burden of climbing down stairs. The functional effect is also added for sampling area to select the materials of furniture and leather color. Using the individual cantilevered stairs as the structure makes the connection to upper and lower floor. The sense of independence is provided by using the transparent glass for every single step. Hairline finish stainless steel provides the connection for floors. The concrete architecture with composite elements of wood layer and round arc titanium iron soften the liner rules and create a sense of coordination of conflict.
