有人說旅行時,身處在陌生的城市裡,人們會變得勇於嘗試,像是有一個全新做人的機會,可以成為那個在熟悉的地方一直想成為,但始終跨不出第一步的自己。

但旅行中那個風趣、迷人的自己為什麼要隨著旅途結束就消失呢?對,假期會結束,或是在旅行的某個階段總要回歸生活面,但這不意味著旅行中令人亢奮的元素不能延續,甚至#生活就該比旅行精彩 啊!

It’s been said all the time that, while people were traveling, they tended to be more adventurous, as if they were given a chance to be a brand new person they’ve always wanted to be.

But why does the funny and charming self have to go away as the trip ends? Yes, vacations and holidays end, even travelers have to settle somewhere at some point of their journeys in order to embark on their adventure again, but it doesn’t mean the excitement of traveling have to disappear. As the matter of fact, life should be more exciting than traveling!

Pubic area that still carries the hostel vibe.

關於香蕉同居中-東門 About Banana Co-living: Dongmen

香蕉同居中-東門的前身為一間接待各國背包客的青年旅館,書架上還留著各國語言的旅遊書,現在則是一間維持背包客棧精神的共生公寓,有寬敞的公共空間、浴廁與完整的廚房,即使不再是客棧,仍透過共享與空間設計延續人與人之間的交流與互助。

座落在兩條捷運線交會的東門捷運站步行兩分鐘處,與美食、人文聚集的永康街比鄰,對街就是超市與傳統市場,舉世聞名的鼎泰豐創始店就在不遠處,而最具代表性的台灣美食⎯永康牛肉麵就在轉角!

身處文教區,除了環境單純與安靜,師大、台大、市立北大、文化大學華文中心都在搭車十五分鐘的範圍內。即使是在市中心,仍然能享受到大安森林公園的一大片綠地,散步十分鐘即可參觀中正紀念堂的各式展覽,沿著筆直的信義路一眼望去即是台北101,也算是台北獨有的一片景致。

Banana Co-living: Dongmen was a backpacking hostel, and the travel guides in all kinds of languages on the shelf still show the trace of that. Now, it’s transformed into a co-living apartment which still has that care-free hostel vibe. With spacious public areas, shared bathrooms, and a full kitchen, the place carry on the communication between people through sharing and designs.

Located within 2 minutes walk from MRT Dongmen station, the apartment sits next to the popular tourist attraction Yongkang Street, and a supermarket and a traditional market are right across the street. The world-famous Ding-Tai-Feng is only a few minutes walk away, and the most iconic Taiwanese food Yongkang Beef Noodle is just at the corner!

In this area, which is known for it’s tranquil atmosphere, campuses of NTU, NTNU, University of Taipei, and Mandarin Learning Center of Chinese Cultural University are within 15 minutes traffic. Even though living in the center of Taipei, it’s easy to reach the nature of the city in Da’an park, and also enjoy cultural events in C.K.S Memorial Hall with the urban sceneary of Taipei 101.

混合房每床月租NT$7000,女生房每床月租NT$6000
(此為簽約半年以上價格)NT$6000 per bed per month in the mixed dorm, NT$5000 per bed per month in the female dorm, includes all bills.

每個床鋪皆有遮光拉簾提供個人隱私,以及個人閱讀燈與個人充電插座,床位邊也有簡易衣物掛鉤,讓居住者有機能完善的個人空間。除了床底下附有行李置物區外,提供有鎖的小型個人置物櫃與一公用儲藏間。

There’s curtains around every bed, and also reading lights, personal plug-ins and hangers are provided, making it a functional space with privacy. Besides the storage underneath the bed, there’re lockers and a public storage room, which allows tenants to keep their valuables and bulky objects.

|Private rooms|

在東門有三種不同的獨立房間,每間房都有個人衣櫃與儲物空間,擁有完全的隱私。在設計上利用架高床架增加空間利用的效率,以及大膽使用深色牆面提高視覺深度。其中兩間房間(左圖)有大片窗戶,提供了充足採光,窗外的行道樹同時給予了巧妙的遮蔽效果。

There’re three different kinds of private rooms in this co-living apartment. In each room, a small size closet and storage can be found, giving tenants full privacy. Thoughts were put into the designs to have more efficient usage of the space, such as the vertical arrangement of sleeping area and lounging area, and bold choice of wall color that adds depth to the room. Two of the private rooms are with big windows, provides sufficient sunlight to the room, and the privacy of the room are given by the trees outside at the same time.

公共空間 Public areas

作為一個共居空間,在空間的設計上必須兼顧私人與共享之間的平衡。一樓為公共起居室,提供電視、公共電腦與多種桌遊等娛樂設施,過去是旅人們漫長旅途中暫時落腳、交換故事的大廳,現在是出門在外一整天最期待返回的家,有室友溫暖的迎接,分享著共同在城市中打拼的點滴,在偌大的城市中不再感到孤單。

In a co-living apartment, the balance between privacy and sharing is crucial. The first floor is a public lounge area, where all sorts of entertainments such as TV, public PC, and board games can be found. The area used to be a place where travelers exchange their stories before they head to the next destination. Now, it’s the place where tenants can be welcomed by their housemates’ warm smiles after a long day.

頂樓是廚房與用餐空間,連接洗衣間與戶外露台,大片的落地窗迎接早晨的陽光,每天早上來到頂樓,為自己準備好早餐,在露台與室友們一同享用,感受城市的脈動再出發展開全新的一天。

充足的用餐空間也可作為公共工作桌,不管是學生或是在家辦公者都能有足夠的空間,或是假日一起動手下廚交流廚藝,頂樓空間就像張空白畫布,等待入住的每個室友為它賦予意義。

The rooftop is kitchen and dinning area connected to the balcony and laundry room. Every morning, natural sunlight goes through the ceiling window and light up the room. Just grab your breakfast and enjoy it on the balcony with your housemates under the sun, and get ready to start your day.

The spacious dinning area can also be use as a co-working space for students and digital nomads. The space is like a blank canvas, whether people want to use it as a studio for cooking, an office, or a place for entertainment, it’s all up to the tenants to give meanings and lives to the co-living space.
