The site is an apartment building adjacent to Zhongshan North Road, an important north-south road throughout history, on the west side of Taipei city.
The design concept derived from achieving the reduction of carbon emissions.
Flow like water, symbolize a recyclable resource. By conscious selection of renewable construction materials like wood, stainless steel, tiles, glasses to carry out the environmental sustainability.
With the metaphor of the flow of time traffic movement is just like a river, the designer is taking the idea of water being fluid, transparent, and reflective to design the common spaces.
Wood grill ceiling with curved wavy three dimensional shape from exterior all the way to reception and continuing through the social area and mail room represent the water flow.
For energy saving and carbon reduction, such as light-colored walls require less lighting needs, local production tiles with lower carbon footprint, the environment-friendly issues are what we focus on in design.
