LivinGreen is located at Taipei City, Number 76 Chaozhou Street. The building is a three-stories Japanese styled concrete and steel old house built in 1963. It was used as a police station and a police dormitory for many years. Then it was left idle in 1990 for almost 20 years. It was until the summer of 2018, that the management team began a project plan to transform the place. The design focused on using the original materials and architectural elements of the old house and added childhood memories of the team members to present an atypical dining space and menu design.
The Taiwanese are used to tearing up old buildings or old houses to rebuild, but reconstructed buildings often create a disparity with neighboring communities. This old house has been in this community for more than 56 years and has coexisted with a strange but familiar sense. We used the color green, the Pantone 5463, common in this area and named it the “Chaozhou Green”.
