A CRUISE-SHAPED BUILDING   

COMPLETED 2006
LOCATION : NANGANG DISTRICT, TAIPEI CITY
CLIENT : RUENTEX GROUP 
COLLABORATED WITH OFA 
TEMPORARY BUILDING FOR NEW HOME SALES

This temporary building is a reception center for new home sales, located in a redevelopment zone of the city. The site is long and narrow, which is an advantage for an eye-catching building. 

The target customers of this construction project are middle class, who have stable job and income, but a routine life. Our design strategy is to make a link of two dreams: the dream of traveling and the dream of having a home. A cruise ship could be a proper icon. We proposed a cruise-shaped building, the horizontal fluorescent tubes on the facade is an impression of moving light, and, the boarding deck entrance a metaphorical imagination.
