Your Fun Apartment
"No 9, Lane 269, Haian Rd. 2nd Section, Central West District, Tainan City 700, Taiwan (R.O.C.) (Please enter from Lane 259)"
We have a joyful approach to life and the passion and drive to achieve our goals. We feel that a guest house is a good way to demonstrate this passion to you. Here, we are able to realize our dreams by passionately show- ing what has and has not been done. Then, we wait to see the results…
Our slogan at Your Fun Apartment is “A Playground for Living, Fun, and Design.” It is also our first inspiration. Tainan is a comfortable place to live. Therefore, we chose to build our guest house here and began to under- stand and experience what life is like in Tainan. Accordingly, we designed our guest house with a fun atmo- sphere to see what we can bring to guests staying with us.
We named our guest house “Your Fun Apartment” because… Confucian Analects once said “A son shall not go on a long distance journey when his parents are still alive”. In contrast, we believe that “a good desti- nation is for either life or trips.” Then, naturally, the English words “Your Fun” sprang to mind, as we felt that they communicate our fun attitude towards life. It is certainly our wish that all guests staying with us can have fun!
We refer to ourselves as “the Apartment”, so that visitors can feel they are staying in a homely environment, and our guests here can feel free and relaxed. They can go upstairs and downstairs. They can go to the open space on the first or second floor for chatting, reading, or listening to music. Stories and TV show screenings occur here, too. Sometimes, it reminds us of the scenes and atmosphere of the French film “The Spanish Apartment.”
Taiwanese Old House with French Elegance... French people and Tainan people have something in common: both are proud of their own culture and history, and they live at a slow but comfortable speed. This is the life we want to live, and a life that we are learning to live now. This is why we chose to mix Taiwanese and French styles and themes together in a traditional style Tainan house.
Your Fun Apartment would like to present its customers with neither the luxurious decorations of the Louis XIV era, nor the grandness of Napoleon III’s Opéra de Paris. We don’t want to only present you with an image of a French village, with its printing patterns and ceramic cups and plates. We also appreciate the stylish, easy- going and sturdy features of contemporary French home decoration style. We also incorporate the popular loft style of New York apartments, as well as the European retro look of the 1960s. The French also admire oriental elements, and we often see their skillful mix of oriental and western cultures combined with a French atmo- sphere.
We selected a typical Taiwanese old house with many old Taiwanese elements, and we are really fond of French home decoration style. This is the idea that inspires us to make the transformation, by using a traditional Taiwanese house as the subject decorated in a French style.
