This iconic tower makes part of the rapidly developing 7th District in Taichung, Taiwan, where the architects decided to bring a landmark made of strong Italian design and with a lighting project promoting this vision.
The building accomodates high end residential units, together with several public Spaces, in the Ground Floor and the first two levels.
Externally, the almost 160 meters high tower is composed by three seemingly slender stone covered surfaces, which are also the load bearing elements – and the glass surfaces of the balconies. This architectural gesture is underlined with the lighting design, integrating a fixture in the facade creating blades of light.

The resulting light effect accentuates the verticality of the structure, while the horizontal planes look almost dissolved, adding strength to this new risen structure, creating a new landmark in the Taichung nightscape.
This detail had been introduced in the project from the earliest stages, and went through multiple mockups in laboratory and on-site, in order to ensure the fine result, without reflections, glare and with consistent light quality.
