The building’s entrance showcases a waterfall feature that promotes microclimate circulation, adding visual appeal and functional comfort. The lobby features 3D curved structures with metal and stone-paint finishes, complemented by a custom glazed chandelier that enhances the dynamic atmosphere. The careful selection of materials and finishes ensures a harmonious blend of aesthetics and functionality.

Functionally, the building’s standard flooring mimics the motion of flowing water, creating a sense of movement and fluidity throughout the space. The 23rd floor is designed with wellness in mind, offering a state-of-the-art gym and a serene yoga space with stunning views. The ceiling above is transformed into a shallow pool, allowing natural light to permeate the space and create a calm and soothing ambiance. This innovative feature not only enhances the visual appeal but also provides energy savings and reduces heat, contributing to the project’s overall sustainability.

Moving up to the 24th floor, a see-through pool offers captivating views into the gym area, blurring the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces and enhancing a sense of openness. The rooftop garden, complete with an outdoor bar and blue LED lighting, adds vibrancy and liveliness to the outdoor atmosphere, making it an engaging and enjoyable space for residents and visitors alike.

This project stands out for its harmonious blend of innovative design principles and careful execution. It successfully combines aesthetic fluidity and spatial awareness with usability and eco-consciousness. The use of low-carbon, energy-efficient materials and LED lighting not only showcases the project’s commitment to environmental sustainability but also contributes to creating a healthier living environment for its occupants.

The incorporation of natural elements, such as the entrance waterfall and rooftop garden, creates a tranquil living space within the bustling urban setting. These elements not only enhance the beauty of the premises but also provide residents with an opportunity to connect with nature, promoting well-being and reducing the stress of urban living. The project’s emphasis on living harmoniously with the environment is reflected in every aspect of its design, from the choice of materials to the integration of natural elements, resulting in a space that enhances the quality of life for its inhabitants.

In conclusion, this new project in New Taipei City is a testament to the successful integration of innovative design, functionality, and sustainability. It offers a seamless blend of aesthetics and usability, creating a space that not only serves as a public facility but also fosters a sense of community and interaction with the surrounding urban environment.
