Eco, bio and nature-friendly is in today, because you feel alienated from nature in your everyday life. In modern architecture, designers are increasingly turning to natural materials and unconventional solutions in order to ensure a bit more natural life for future residents. Natural stones and boulders are very popular when designing rock gardens, especially in the Asian and Zen styles, as part of a modern house facade, these appear more than extraordinary.

The flat roof house designed by Create + Think Design Studio is located on the east coast of Taiwan and has been described by the locals as a “rocky” place, and not without reason. The house facade, as well as other architectural elements – side walls, patio columns, garden design, consist of natural stones and boulders in their natural look and structure.

The house is a real masterpiece, in which modern design and traditional, local architecture merge into one another. This combination of materials and the shape of the building itself harmonize with the surrounding exotic landscape. Natural stones and boulders, water, lush greenery and the structuring of the indoor and outdoor areas seamlessly combine the nature of Taiwan’s east coast and the modern living environment.

Wood is the second most important design element, after stone, in the interior and exterior of this villa. It can be seen as the ceiling cladding of the patio roof, as a floorboard on the terrace, in a darker variant in the interior design of the bedroom and as a solid worktop in the open kitchen.
