Commercial Bank Headquarters of Taichung (Commercial Bank Hq & Five Star Hotel) by Aedas
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The design concept is based on the Chinese character “Chung (Centre)” in the Taichung bank logo. Unlike the traditional tower, the project divides the space into two blocks and joins them with the low-level public space. The low-level public space was designed in several box volumes and penetrate into the middle transparent glass curtain wall. The middle-level areas set up several glass boxes, which could serve as public green space and greatly enhanced the richness of the tower facade.
Creativity
The 210m high tower is a mixed use development comprised of the Taichung Bank Headquarter, a 5 star hotel and a private VIP club at the top. Instead of stacking all these functions in a singular tower, the design intention is to create two separate towers with a vertical void in the centre. A series of ‘float¬ing’ volumes which house the large functions such as the ballroom, swimming pool, and meeting rooms will be situated inside the void to create a unique iconic space facing the main road.
Design Challenges
Aedas did not encounter any design challenges while designing the award winning Commercial Bank Headquarters of Taichung Commercial Bank Hq & Five Star Hotel.
Production Technology
From an engineering point of view, the Commercial Bank Headquarters of Taichung Commercial Bank Hq & Five Star Hotel by Aedas is a good example of a highly-developed project.
