這是一個位於台北市的商店街區內樓高 12 層樓的集合住宅。居住在台灣的人很聰明的在高溫多濕的氣候中尋找出各式各樣的中間領域豐富自己的生活。巧妙的運用城市所有所到之處以及街道的延伸，圍塑出簡易的與人開心聊天吃飯的空間場所。在這樣獨特的生活型態下，我一直思考如何尋找出適合擁有如此多采多姿的台灣人的生活空間，同時又為 21 世紀新的集合住宅的建築。因此、我們思考的不是一個有著標準層平面的塔樓住宅，而是一個在不避開建築斜線的限制下以退縮的方式，讓所有的住戶都擁有著大面積陽露台的住宅。陽露台被斜屋頂以及植栽所包覆，讓建築物的表面有了立体的、舒適的中間領域。
6 米的格狀樑柱結構上覆蓋了 3 米的格狀斜屋頂架構。建築物的本體結構為 RC 構造，斜屋頂則為輕巧的鋼骨構造。斜屋頂為固定的斜率，透過傾斜方向的變化賦予建築物豐富的表情變化。斜屋頂的配置方向，以雨水的水流做為分歧的展開，成為一個網狀水路分流。細緻的屋頂垂直立柱與排水的垂直管道，在立面上呈現出自然的韻律，亦即、將雨水的分流以立體式的方式呈現。讓串流在城市裡的風、以及凹凸多變的形狀，柔和的散佈在整個建築表面，同時也能提高陽露台舒適性，並大幅度的降低「大樓風」的產生。
讓建築與空氣和水有了相互連結的關係，這樣的建築應該是最適合亞洲 21 世紀高層建築的型態。
This project is a 12-story multi-family residential building located on a shop-lined street in Taipei City. The residents of Taiwan exercise their cleverness on finding an impressive array of "intermediary territories" to enrich their lives in the island's hot and humid climate. They apply their ingenuity wherever they go in the city and forge extensions of the streets, encircling and sculpting makeshift spaces and places to merrily chat and dine with others. I have been thinking about how to create the kind of living space that suits the unique and vibrant lifestyles of Taiwanese people, while also designing a new type of clustered housing that is fitting for the 21st century. Hence, we have in mind not a residential tower with standard floor plans, but rather a way to give every unit an extensive terrace through setbacks and by skirting the confines of diagonal building height lines. The terraces are wrapped by slanted roofs and vegetation, creating comfortable three-dimensional "intermediary territories" on building surfaces.
Slanted roofs with a 3m grid are overlaid on top of post-and-beam systems on a 6m grid. The building structure is reinforced concrete while the slanted roofs are in lightweight steel frames. The roofs incline at a fixed angle, the expressions of the building originating from variations in the direction of inclination. The directions of inclination are allocated based on the divergence of rainwater flow to form a rainwater network. Delicate vertical roof posts and vertical drainpipes form a natural rhythm on the facades; in other words, the divergence of rainwater is portrayed in a three-dimensional way. Wind that whirls through the city along with protrusions and recesses in the building are gently dispersed throughout the building surfaces, also serving to enhance the comfort of the terraces and drastically reducing the forming of high-rise drafts.
There is now an interlinking relationship between building, air and water. This is the prototype of a 21-Century high-rise building perhaps most suitable to Asia.
