Cats’ Pink House is a three-floor dwelling by the sea in Jhunan, Taiwan. For the owner, it is a place to relax and have fun with her three cats on holidays. To build a pure pink space, KC Design Studio used pink mineral paint as a base for the walls and ceilings and chose different pink materials in natural hues to compose the mixed style.
The first-floor space is the public area, a living room for daily life and gatherings with friends. To display the owner’s collection, rose gold stainless steel was applied to the mobile shelves and other cabinets to serve as a delicate texture contrast to the coarse wall. The living room and dining room are clearly separated. However, the flow and the seat direction can increase the possibility of interaction between the two areas. For the ceiling dome above the cooking area, the exaggerated style and pattern, along with their functions, support the fun in the space and conceal the required equipment and piping.
The second floor is the private space with the master bedroom, the bathroom, and the cats’ room. The cats’ room at the center is connected with other spaces. The space design of the cats’ room surrounds them and the owner and blends their respective areas. The ladders for cats to walk on are combined with the owner’s writing table, while the glass of the master bathroom can be controlled to adjust the transparency for privacy.
Different from the first and second floors, the multi-functional third floor with a different style, is the only place connected to the outdoors. Some partial pink and geometric elements are combined with a quiet and simple design technique that preserves the original texture of materials, such as the iron pieces, cement and wood to mark the transition area between the outdoors and indoors.
