Aedas‘ design of the Commercial Bank Headquarters in Taichung, Taiwan, won the Tall Buildings category at MIPIM/The Architectural Review Future Project Awards 2018. Take a look at the complete story after the jump.
From the architects: Designed by Chairman and Global Design Principal Keith Griffiths, Commercial Bank Headquarters Project is a 200-metre high tower located in the commercial centre of Taichung city. It comprises headquarters office space for Taichung Commercial Bank and luxury hotel accommodation. The design concept originates from the Chinese character ‘中’ on the logo of the Taichung Commercial Bank. Instead of stacking all functions in a singular tower, the design creates two separate towers with a vertical void in the middle to connect them and capture the large facilities. A series of ‘floating’ transparent glass boxes for large functions such as exhibition areas, sky gardens, conferencing facilities, a ballroom and a swimming pool is situated inside the void to enrich the building shape and create an eye-catching feature along the main road. The rooftop terrace features a restaurant and VIP club with outdoor landscaped terrace, providing a spectacular balcony with magnificent city view.
