The architecture is located in Taiwan. The
east of the architecture faces Pacific cliff,
so there is an excellent view of sea, and the
west side of the coastal mountains, the
sunshine will become weak after 3 pm, so the
facades of the building use different types of
glass, expecting the greatest light source and
making the visual penetration with the
natural. There is a lot of trees in the
building-related position in consideration of
the sunshine.
The idea of the architecture, from the place
of the west side of the coast of the ridge
line, and the organic curve is close to nature
for the development of the building. The roof
use "STO waterproof insulation system", by 10
cm insulation layer, the average roof heat
transfer rate (Ui) can be reduced, and with
"ZINCO roof green waterproofing system" to
increase the green area, and use plants to
regulate the climate. The gallery is linked
with the route between guest room, pool and
hall. The second floor is designed by the idea
of “overlooking”, which is expresses geometric
shape. Two floors are connected by large
atrium space indoor to challenge the regular
outlook and closed floors of modern
architecture.
