One More Residential Tower

Kaohsiung, Taiwan

2013-2020

“In our culture today, we are constantly over-exposed to information and data.  It is important to create a living environment that provides a relief from these elements through a reconnection with nature.  The simplicity of design for the tower is the result of maximizing the dramatic relationship to the natural environment. The horizontal band defines the uninterrupted view of the park, mountain, and sea; while also performing as a sustainable shading element to reduce heat gain.”

The 100 meter tall concrete tower is composed of 53 2-bedroom units with open kitchen and living room views toward the park.  Resident amenity spaces include private lobby and resident amenity spaces, back private garden, and roof garden.  Retail units are located at the 1st and 2nd Floors. 

The essence of simple, natural and quiet living from the natural environment is extended into each unit through the generous balcony garden and then into each living room.  The design breaks from the monotony of the neighboring typical residential typology with simple bands that vary in height to exemplify its organic inspiration.
