How do you blend Scandinavian simplicity with Taiwanese culture? This multi-storeyed home, designed by Taiwan’s HAO Design and photographed by Hey! Cheese has the answer. Using white walls, wood and block shapes, this minimalistic home shows Taiwanese anime culture.
A striking feature, the wooden block staircase is the first introduction to this bicultural home. Using three types of wood for shelving, tables and floors, the living space retains simplicity with clean, simple lines, retaining interest through muted-pattern throws and rugs. Potted and hanging plants add life.

Views up and down the staircase, the home’s central feature, make for a cathartic experience. Housed in a small space, white walls and solid wood lifts visitors to higher plains within the structure.
A spark of colour with a bright, turquoise desk breaks the simplicity of the interior, afforded by the concrete flooring and toned-down wall colouring.

The block theme continues seamlessly throughout the home. Reflected in the staircase design, French windows and fragmented wood panelling, each block elements tells its own story.
Lush plant life and a teardrop mirror in the bathroom add a Scandinavian cabin feel that feels both global and particular. Full wooden floors, ceilings and walls give the experience of being in another world, while wide-paned windows let the outside world in.
The block design carries through to the exterior, which is as strong by day as by night. Day shows distinct elements present inside, while night illuminates the block design.
Extra partitions are made in steel against the concrete façade, mimicking the usage of different woods in a block pattern in the interior. A stone entrance marks a spot of difference.
