Tsao & McKown has designed the masterplan for a residential community outside of Taipei, with contributing designs from Annabelle Selldorf, Richard Meier, and Steven Harris, as well as landscaping by Margie Ruddick. 

Named The Master Collection, the project will consist of 28 private residences in the Great Taipei New Town District.

Working with the steep and varied terrain, each architect developed their own architectural strategy to navigate the various site conditions.

Pedestrian paths, parks, other shared green spaces, and a nature-inspired clubhouse designed by Tsao & McKown will unify the community.

The design will additionally feature elements such as sunken driveways below pedestrian paths, and vegetated green walls to prevent hillside erosion.
