Wei Yi International Design Associates creates grey-toned apartment in Taipei

Concrete, clay and dark blue wallpaper line the walls and ceilings of this darkly atmospheric apartment in Taipei, Taiwan, designed by locally based studio Wei Yi International Design Associates.

Measuring 270 square metres, the Blue Eye apartment is located in the city's Zhuwei neighbourhood with panoramic views of the Tamsui River to the west and Mount Datun to the north east. It also neighbours a protected wetlands reserve with a mangrove forest, and Guandu Bridge.

Warm-coloured metals and wood, such as brass and copper, serve as a warm counterbalance to the concrete used within the interior.

A series of floor-to-ceiling structures that provide storage space throughout the apartment are made from criss-crossing brass rods.

"The visual changes created by the intertwining of structures give the user a magical feeling when he or she moves within the space," commented the designers.

The owner's art collection is also displayed throughout the apartment, including wooden sculptures and a one-hundred-year-old hemp carpet from Uzbekistan that is displayed at the apartment's entrance.

Previously, the Tapei-based studio has created an all-grey apartment in the city, which features concrete walls, cement floors, grey tiles, marble and dark stained wood.
