老屋猶新 - 毛房鍋物
The rebirth of an old house - Mao Fun
Design by Eddy x Owen
Spring breeze blows through Ying-Chun Gate.
The towers in the north and south side form a barrier to guard all streets in the city.
The view is broad when seeing from the height of gate.
Green willows on both sides of the river brush on the water surface lightly.
Blooming Coral tree looks like burning sky. Green and red color makes a beautiful picture.

【Old house, New spirit】
Tainan, Taiwan-the place with profound cultural heritage.
It's easy to see the previous peerless glory in any unknown lane of Tainan.
This house is located on Futang street and closed to the Ying-Chun Gate built in Ming Zheng Dynasty.
Old house vaguely exudes its extraordinary splendor.
The original building is a duplex two-story building which is abandoned for a long time.
It is converted into a commercial space but keep its original spirit.
The appearance of mottled wash pebble surface is restored.
Bronze outer tubes and blackened wooden frame naturally integrate into the appearance without conflict.
Several design concepts are combined with its own traditional window grilles, wooden truss of the roof, cement sheet, brick wall and staircase to reflect the new value of old house.
Quaint terrazzo floor mixed with Spanish tiles.
Aged staircase is decorated by Morocco colored frosted glass lighting.
The lamps are like stars glittered in the sky.
The renovation strikes the perfect balance between old and new.
【The time , The memory】
Brass is used as the design element to activate the chemical reaction of old house
As time goes by, many memories and images appear.
Different sizes of the copper spoons hang on the mottled wall of the entrance.
These spoons and antiquated furniture build a warm and reunited atmosphere.
It is not only a renovated old house, it is “HOME”.
The entrance path is located in the concealed lane of the side of house.
With the arrangement of moving line, a different visual view will be seen after walking some paces or a turn.
The original large open window greets sunlight into the room in the day time and embraces the moonlight in the night.
A light through from patio, a few pots of succulent plants and the boiling hot pot full of food are the best healing from the old house.
