We proudly present our first gallery featuring a home crafted by PartiDesign. This example is a modern apartment in Banqiao, Taipei.
This home manages the feat of mixing the most traditional of construction materials, natural wood, with the utmost edge of modern style. Minimalism informs the look from floor to ceiling, with natural wood tones matching throughout the space.
Hardwood flooring in a light tone blends deftly with slightly warmer wood furniture and shelving. Details like built-in and hidden wall cabinetry, floating entertainment platforms, and intricate table designs appear throughout the space.
The natural wood appears in a multitude of iterations over nearly every surface, punctuated by black and dark brown tones in key places. Large leather sectional, layered coffee table, room-dividing desk, and media shelving each offer standout contrast within the continuous wood tones in the large open central body of the apartment.
Small bursts of color, from dining seating, to an innovative sliding chalkboard, break up the monolithic color palette.
With its Zen-like coherency of design, we hope this space is as inspiring and soothing to you as it is for us. We will have more examples from PartiDesign in the near future.
The space is awash in neutral, natural tones, from light hardwood flooring, to white walls and grey media backdrop. Floor to ceiling windows at left provide ample natural light.
This office space is defined by the large wooden desk with built-in storage, across from wall-size natural wood shelving.
As demonstrated here, the full height chalkboard mounted in front of the wood shelving slides to reveal more storage. A room dividing curtain can be seen retracted at left.
With the dividing curtain and dark grey shades pull down over the lengthy natural wood desk, the office is a fully partitioned private area within the home.
With the curtains fully open, we see the open space flowing into the office area, where a wide full height window and glass patio door allow views to the surrounding city.
Living room furniture includes this mocha leather contemporary sectional, with chaise lounge end. Multi-tiered oblong wood coffee table stands in foreground.
Intricate details like this natural wood rail define the space, using traditional materials in innovative manners. Ceiling design conceals shades and drape hardware.
The unique tiered coffee table stands before the minimalist entertainment center, with an array of shelving in white, black, and natural wood tones.
Glancing over the desk, we see the expanse of living room, with media shelving built into a large dark wood panel on the wall. Full height glass continues at left.
Along with the lower white wood tier floating above the hardwood flooring, we see an array of minimalist natural wood cabinetry and white wood shelving throughout the media wall.
With the shades drawn, the rooms are still naturally illuminated across the expanse of light natural hardwood flooring. An array of embedded ceiling lights are scattered throughout.
The immense windows are partially framed by a lowered ceiling space, framed in black. The minimalist layout allows for a large visual space.
The dark mocha leather of the contemporary sectional pairs well with the lighter natural hardwood flooring and rich wood tables.
Looking toward the other end of the open space, we see a kitchen and dining area at the far right end, with halls toward the rest of the home at center.
Before the main entrance, we have this classical upright piano standing below an immense set of media shelving in both natural and dark stained wood tones.
Here we see a low angle view over the natural wood dining table, with a look inside the dark wood cabinetry beneath white kitchen counter.
The dining table is surrounded by matching wood chairs with accent cushions in purple, red, orange, and blue for a burst of color amidst the neutral toned space. This area also holds a hardwood ceiling.
Bedroom continues the expanse of full height wood paneling and cabinetry, here with a subtle cutout space for television in front of the wood framed bed.
Pulling back, we see the hidden doorway built into the wood paneling.
Close, zoomed view over the dining table shows how perfectly matched the natural wood is throughout the apartment.
This intricate, modern shelving pairs natural wood and black metal for a spartan, open design.
