Boundary by Wei Yi International Design Associates

Boundary is a minimalist interior design located in Taipei, Taiwan, designed by Wei Yi International Design Associates. Since ancient times there have been two choices for the rich and established; to flaunt wealth and fame, or to keep a modest and low-profile. For the owner, an elder with great fortune and rich experiences, the definition of home is more about a delicate balance, and a tender atmosphere. Red, yellow, and blue are the colors that win popularity for traditional royal favor. Instead of the more popular red or yellow, the designers deliberately set the spatial tone with blue, as its quiet elegance and deep sensibility perfectly conveyed the owner’s state of contentment and spirituality.

Widely used gray-level materials such as exposed cement and gray-black veneer were used together with colors of low-brightness and low chroma within the structural space. The entrance is extended to the restaurant, where a large blue wall in the shape of Chinese character “ㄇ”forms uneven changes of shades with irregular layers of bumps on the lacquer surface. The partition wall is thickened symmetrically, which is not only the spatial division, but also the spiritual boundary, as if earthly life and pure land are separated by a line. Technically speaking, the rationality of modernism is the main axis to the overall planning of the space.
