Renovation design of the outer wall facade of the Taipei City Government
Project: Architectural Design
Site: Wanhua District, New Taipei City
Participation: Chou Shukuan, Yang Zixin, Yao Tingting
Implementation: completed and in use
The site is located on the site of the governor’s Yamen in the city of Taipei in the Qing Dynasty. The Yamen was the name of the government office in ancient China, and local officials were in charge of hearing cases. In the design of the front entrance of this case, a strong "door" shape is used to strengthen the image of the entrance, and the lines of modern doors are used to connect with the past Yamen, echoing the memory of the historical Yamen of the site.
Since this project is close to the city's historic site-Zhongshan Hall, in the future design, it will maintain respect for the surrounding environment, emphasizing the design vocabulary of strip-shaped partition, and appropriately accommodate it in the entire environment. The façade division of Zhongshan Hall can analyze two main textures, one is the horizontal division on the lower floor, and the second is the vertical strip window design on the upper floor.
The facade planning on both sides adopts the same logic as that of the Zhongshan Hall facade. It is divided into two sections, the upper part, and the lower part. The four floors below (the lower part) emphasize the horizontal division of stone design, and the five floors and above (the upper part) use metal-clad plates to shape the length. The design of the frame.
