In a beautiful setting on the new expansions of Tainan sits this prime location just in front of the new National History Museum of Taiwan. The program for this luxury development is very large, involving several residential towers and a commercial center. Our main goal has been to build as few towers as possible, so they become as unique as possible and have more open views towards the Museum, the river and the coast far away. The resulting eight towers generate an interplay among them and with their surroundings that helps create a feeling of belonging and of high life-style quality.
The floor plans are diaphanous, without interior structure, supported by a central core and a perimeter structure developing some of our most recent experiences, like Diagonal ZeroZero Tower in Barcelona. This results in a very flexible plan that can be marketed according to changing conditions and adapted to future social needs. Each apartment has a very large terrace protected from the wind, allowing for an outdoors experience throughout the year. Several sustainability strategies are implemented in order to reduce carbon emissions and operating costs.
