Hualien Residences Taiwan, BIG, Bjarke Ingels Group

Situado en el centro de un área destinada históricamente a la actividad industrial, el complejo residencial y comercial Hualien propone un nuevo paisaje para el perfil costero, dominando un terreno rodeado por deltas al oeste de las montañas de Taiwan. El diseño reproduce el perfil montañoso del lugar estableciendo delgados volúmenes que serpentean el terreno de este a oeste ordenados aleatoriamente.

El conjunto exhibe el perfil versátil propiciado por la dinámica de sus líneas. Su figura intenta fundirse con la geografía del lugar. Esta disposición permite ubicar los planos verticales en dirección norte – sur parar evitar la acción de los rayos solares intensos y alcanzan niveles de iluminación favorable.

Los techos cubiertos de vegetación ayudan a mitigar la ganancia de calor, atenuada por las sombras que genera el propio conjunto. Esta disposición de las cubiertas minimiza el impacto sobre los espacios de intercambio e interacción social creados alrededor de los edificios.

Un camino público envuelve el complejo que, además de estimular la actividad pedestre,  recorre pequeños comercios y restaurantes. El complejo cuenta también con una pista de jogging subterráneo se puede ser utilizada como ruta de acceso a los edificios para evitar  las inclemencias del tiempo. Un centro médico, salas multimedia, salones, piscinas jardines comunes y la biblioteca completan el programa.

“Se alienta a la comunidad y la interacción vecinal en la forma misma del edificio. El camino público se convierte en un condensador social; un camino donde la gente puede comprar tranquilamente, tener reuniones informales, salir a correr, o tomar paseos después de cenar”

Información de BIG

TLDC, a prominent land developer based in Taipei, has recently obtained license to turn what used to be an industrial and factory region into a world class beach resort. The site has great potential for spectacular views as it is located prominently against the coast and near the intersection of two river deltas.

Taiwan’s spine of mountains can be seen to the west while the ocean is to the east; Hualien city is to the north. For the resort masterplan, a language of green landscape stripes create a mountain terrain of commercial and residential program that echo the natural mountains in distance.

The stripes run east-west to frame the best views while also becoming an optimal shading system for Taiwan’s hot and humid tropical climate. Low-angle, high-glare morning and evening sun is effortlessly blocked by the stripes while favorable north-south light is allowed into the units. Green roofs further mitigate heat gain and combined with the striping create a low energy masterplan.
