Project Description

FROM THE ARCHITECT:

The site is a long rectangular shape with the narrower side facing a street by the Taoyuan County exit of national highway. The scheme consists of a lifted three-story glass box volume and a sequence of double layered perforated metal panels. Resonating with the form of ancient Chinese lucky animal, the form of the project takes inspiration of “dragon”, a symbol of success and luck. Giving maximum presence to the context, the overall massing of project applies advantage of the length of the site to make a continuous extension to all dimensions of the project. The angular forms overlap one another, hiding windows between while providing protection from the direct sunlight into the interior space to reduce the usage of air condition.
