Project Description

The KCI headquarters is located in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. It was constructed adjacent to a 30-meter road providing office, conference, and warehousing space. Facing the road, a suspended moulded wall was installed to reduce the impact of the hustle and bustle outside. At a glance, the second-floor appears smaller due to the glass exterior of the first floor being withdrawn from the interior of the glass to give a feeling of suspension. The design choice has allowed for plentiful natural light and abundant vegetation. The changing environment creates a unique visual experience for the office space. A natural passage of time is created by the displacement of the light and shade, giving the space life.
On the left side of the building, a raised platform was installed to act as a buffer before entering the building. The height of the platform forms an interesting proportional relationship with the suspended moulded wall. It forms a balcony on the second floor creating excellent continuity while facilitating a space for employees and visitors to interact with each other.
The stairs to the left of the building provide a clear direction of movement, reducing the interference with the use of t
