Treasure Garden, residential innovation by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel in Taiwan
Taiwan is rapidly growing and architecture reflects its development: for example, Milan based studio Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel has recently completed Treasure Garden, a residential tower which pays homage to the geometric designs of Gio Ponti and provides lavish living spaces and generous common areas in an elegant Italian fashion.
The residential complex, slightly less than 160 meters in height, is marked by a unified design framework with elongated lattice patterns and a contrasting yet delicate color palette using metallic elements; in addition, the building overlooks the adjacent park, opening up the elegant interiors to panoramic views of the city.
The new residential tower is characterized by slender and light blades, from ground to sky, covered by a diamond-shaped screen of an elegant and flexible geometry applied both on the façade and inside the communal spaces.
Finally, the project consists of a series of planes, with areas conceived as residential zones, public spaces, terraces and landscapes and, in particular, the landscape project is based on the definition of a space of clear, defined access: it differentiates a private place, defined towards the outside by a double enclosure with a diamond design, a filtering wall to create a rich, calm garden, with fruit trees inside, and sculptural trees to mark the automobile access and the entrance.
Innovative architecture with a touch of Italy.
