Text description provided by the architects. Danshuei is a beautiful town surrounded by the largest Mangrove Ecosystem and the seaside landscape in New Taipei City, Taiwan. The project, “Ocean Grand Residence” located in Danshuei very close to the natural environment with wonderful views of mountains and the river confluence. The building's form is derived from the water flow and dedicated to reflect the link between nature and residential construction.
“Ocean Grand Residence” is a contemporary architecture at 5,067 sqm and 15 stories high. The high position of the building area allows residence to have the ocean view from inside the house. The ground floor of the building is open for an art museum, while the apartments are situated on the upper floors. The wavy exterior facade of this building offers a greater view and decreases the oppressed feeling between each floor.
This project has been considered as one of the most contemporary architecture in Taiwan, which won the Gold Prize for the residential architecture of Taiwan Architecture Award.
