Architecture

Taipei Story House is a half-timbered faux Tudor style building, which is rare in Taiwan.  The first floor features a brick load-bearing wall and a door with ionic style columns. The second floor is a wood structure with woven branches on the exterior wall. The Gothic-style house tower and chimney are made of brick, and the curved gable is covered with bronze tiles, on which the verdigris caused by aging reveals the trace of time.

The tower above the entrance is inlaid with green, yellow, and red stained glass. Inside the house are two fireplaces and art nouveau tiles featuring natural and floral patterns. The overall configuration of the interior space, together with the outdoor balconies and terraces, exhibit a classic style and are closely integrated with the surrounding landscape.

Garden

The garden of Taipei Story House consists of more than one hundred kinds of vegetation. With a pond, red brick dwarf wall, curved paths and the Tudor style heritage building, it becomes a secret garden in the midst of the bustling city.

Playground

The design theme of the Playground is "Childhood of Yesteryear", featuring terrazzo slides, old-fashioned swings and the game of hopscotch. Old photographs of the Keelung River and Zhongshan Bridge taken during the Japanese occupation period are exhibited in the playground as a reflection of the beauty of Yuanshan area.
