RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY

WUXING RESIDENTIAL TOWERS

TAIPEI, TAIWAN

This urban renewal project is located on a uniquely configured site, whose shape was defined by the consenting land owners contributing their land and low-rise residential buildings in conjunction with a relocation agreement to provide units in the new development. The goal of this project is to rejuvenate an older residential section of Taipei and to enhance the quality of life for its residents.

 

Taiwan’s official flower, the Queen Golden Monkey Orchid, was the inspiration for the two towers’ distinctive floor plate, producing the three types of residential products needed to achieve the client’s goals. First, a new low-rise building containing two and three bedroom relocation units, varying between 900 SF and 1,350 SF was created. The two towers were then designed to include 1,350 SF economy apartments on the lower floors and 3,650 SF luxury units on the upper levels.

 

The practice of Feng Shui is deeply rooted in Taiwan’s culture and was a key factor in the towers’ site positioning. The challenge was to minimize the towers’ impact on the low-rise buildings’ sun exposure, while preserving the high-rise towers’ views of Taipei’s most famous building and one of the tallest towers in the world, Taipei 101. Feng Shui influences can also be seen in the towers’ exterior design. Using the octagonal shape of the Ba Gua Mirror, the exterior cross-bracing design consists of two rows of eight vertical octagons, strengthening the structures’ vertical load capacity and enhancing the buildings’ resistance to earthquakes.
