TAIPEI - TAIWAN
RESIDENTIAL PROJECT AND SHOWROOM
Project of interior of the lobby area within of 5 luxurious residential towers building in Danshui designed by arch. Hans Hollein.
It is a very articulated space including different types of rooms like restaurants, meeting rooms, leisure rooms. A strong concept is needed to diversify the design according to the function and at the same time to keep all the spaces within a unique and strong concept. Since the building is facing the ocean “the world of the sea” as a concept came up as a natural choice.Traditional materials belonging to the heritage of old harbors like wooden deck floors, cork and ropes are combined with futuristic materials like laser cut aluminum, Corian and SGX.
In order to promote the sale of the flats of “Sea Mio” building an exhibition is organized next to the construction site. One particularly strong design feature of the lobby project is the suspended ceiling made of MDF panels cut by CNC machine. The wavy profile of these panels put together in a modular sequence recreates the shape of the typical big clouds above the ocean.
