spatial practice have completed One More, a new 100 meter tall residential tower fronting the Museum of Fine Arts Park in Kaohsiung city, Taiwan. Take a look at the complete story after the jump.
“In our culture today, we are constantly over-exposed to information and data. It is important to create a living environment that provides a relief from these elements through a reconnection with nature. The simplicity of design for the tower is the result of maximizing the dramatic relationship to the natural environment. The horizontal band defines the uninterrupted view of the park, mountain, and sea; while also performing as a sustainable shading element to reduce heat gain.”
From the architects: Architecture firm spatial practice have completed the construction of a 100 meter tall residential tower fronting the Museum of Fine Arts Park in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan. The project is designed to take full advantage of its location directly in front of the open park by exemplifying and promoting the essence of natural living in the urban environment.
The 100 meter tall concrete tower is composed of 53 2-bedroom units with open kitchen and living room views toward the park. Resident amenity spaces include private lobby and resident amenity spaces, back private garden, and roof garden. Retail units are located at the 1st and 2nd Floors.
The essence of simple, natural and quiet living from the natural environment is extended into each unit through the generous balcony garden and then into each living room. The design breaks from the monotony of the neighboring typical residential typology with simple bands that vary in height to exemplify its organic inspiration.
