Standard Factory Stage II Site Reconstruction
This project calls for the demolition of a number of old factories separately rented by six high tech corporations in the Phase II development of the Hsinchu Science-based Industrial Park, meanwhile, reserving a portion of the land for the Park’s archive. To the west of the site is the Sun Yat-sen Freeway; to the east is Park Administration building. The site overlooks Park’s Phase I developments along the southern edge, and neighboring with Etron Technology, Inc. at the northern border. It is centrally located at the heart of the Park, and with clear views from the Sun Yat-sen Freeway, it has become a landscape for this well known Science Park.
The main building mass is positioned along the western edge of the site to allow for large open green areas and a formal entry on the eastern side. Right above the main entry, on the east elevation, is a sweeping semi-circular curtain wall; the south elevation utilizes the connecting corridors linking the main building mass with the stair tower to accentuate the building’s three-dimensionality sculptural quality. In the evenings, overlooking the illuminated west elevation from Sun Yat-sen Freeway, the playful contrast between the transparent stair tower and the massive masonry framework becomes another form of visual art; the north side of the building is dedicated to service functions such as parking garage entrances and loading docks. Warm gray was chosen for the exterior claddings to echo with its neighbors and to create a balanced and harmonized state.
