The recent groundbreaking ceremony for Bellevueciti Construction marks the start of construction on spatial practice first residential tower “One More” in Kaohsiung City, at the exclusive front row of the Art Museum Park.
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 and taking full advantage of its location directly in front of the park. 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.
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 result comes from a long process of analysis of the typical Taiwan residential typology. To break the monotony of the typical-found typology, the simple band gesture varies in height on each floor to exemplify its organic inspiration. The scheme promotes 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.
