The Cataholic

許多人都把貓視作家庭的重要成員,可是想與愛貓親密相處,室內設計必須考量其生活習性。為妥善安排戶主與愛貓的生活空間,將兩房闢作寵物的住所,餘下一房充當儲物室,而廳區作為戶主起居的地方,與貓同住一室卻各自擁有專屬區域。

The 'Purrfect' House

When approaching interior designs, we must strike a balance between form and function. For this particular client in 'Mantin Heights' we were faced with an exciting challenge to create a living space for both the owner and her pets, she has a total of 6 cats that shares this space with her together. This is a two-bedroom appartment, and the client requested that we incorporate the cat living spaces into those rooms as well, whilst one room is used as the master bedroom, the other would serve as a storage space.

貓咪空間

創造任由貓咪走來走去的走道和跳台,設計以它們的習性成為出發點,設計師在傢俬上同時兼顧了美學與實用規劃。組合櫃設有跳台,用來收納的地方加上櫃門,而砂盤至於最下層,貓咪可穿個洞口入內如廁,可減輕房內的異味問題。

Feline Space

We were not only faced with the challenge of designing pathways and platforms for the cats to play with, but we had to also incorporate these elements into the furniture designs whilst adhering to our overall design theme of the house to create a seamless canvas, that carries the theme from the living room into the bedrooms as well. The most fun was designing a kitty-litter box in such a way where it is built into the cabinet discretely, maintaining ease of access whilst solving 'smell' related issues.

清新淡雅

露台加上落地玻璃的採光效果,為大廳下來充足的光源,配以米白色的牆壁,令一室變得明淨清新。

Minimalistic Elegance

The living room has glass panes that reach the floor allowing plenty of natural light to flood the room. Natural lighting paired with light cream walls creates a sense of elegance in this minimal space.

空間劃分

整體佈局以簡約為主,配上壁畫、燈飾、擺設等點綴細節,頓時增添幾分時尚品味。磨抓子是貓的特性,為免沙發及其他家具成為它們的抓板 ,於是在走廊入口加設趟門,方便戶主管理貓咪的活動範圍。

Spatial Separation

Cats have a great habit of scratching up everything! Whether it be the ornaments on the shelves or the living room sofa, spatial partioning and separation is important. Whilst the owner is away, we have designed an unobtrusive sliding door that seals the main corridor in the house, stopping the cats from coming out, giving the owner some peace of mind.

金色點綴

家中雜物主要存放在儲物室,故廳區的收納配置並不多,飯廳放上綠色半腰櫃,金色的支架令櫃體更形醒目,旁邊的電視地櫃採用深色橡木鋪飾,與牆身形成深淺對比,製造出空間層次。

A Touch of Gold

In this two bedroom appartment, we have a room dedicated to storage, so there isn't much storage space in the living room. This increased flexibility allows us to allocated more space to the 'living room'. In doing so we have a green half-sleeve cabinet, and adding golden features and ornaments helps make the caibinet appear more conspicuous. The TV cabinet next to it is decorated with dark oak. The depth of the wall is contrasted with the wall to create a more spacious feeling.
Working on this house was a lot of fun and very exciting, we look forward to designing more spaces with pets in mind! Our design on Mantin Heights has been featured in NEW HOUSE's February 2019 Edition, to discover more about this please head on over to our portfolio page.
