This project depicts a new reception hall being renovated on the bottom floor of an aged building in the heart of Taipei city Ren-Ai district. The neighborhood has an elegance of old Taipei, completed with nearby art galleries, furniture showrooms and coffee shops. Based on the location characteristics, we chose “Nostalgia” as the design theme to introduce a new chapter from an old glamour.

Arch was evidently the main element used in this aged building which is now being adopted as the core concept throughout. By adding multiple layers of arches, in various scales, to the exterior, we were able to create additional depth with some mysterious feel to the entrance opening.

The interior is configured like an art gallery, equipped with spacious open areas for showrooms, model displaying, viewing, bars, VIP conference and office use. All areas are separated with arches to further define each individual space.

Special attention is paid in re-creating an atmosphere filled with old time memories. This is achieved by detailing the slate flooring with inlays of old Taipei drainage grates and displaying photographs of all time favorite landmarks. Our hope is to give people the opportunity to relive a history of their own.
