Mole and Gianni Botsford land Taiwan hotel scheme

  • Comment

Mole Architects and Gianni Botsford Architects have been appointed to design a 71,000m² resort in Hsinchu, Taiwan

Based on the concept of a walled hillside village, the scheme features a spa hotel, serviced apartments and 7 luxury villas.

A statement from Mole Architects explained: ‘The design works with traditional Chinese notions of entry, subdivision of space, and south facing pavilions, all set within a series of courtyard buildings. 

‘Landscape is integrated into the urban village setting, with the ravine forming the central spine through the centre of the “village”, with views out at either end.’

The duo beat six other shortlisted design teams to win the job, including Arup, architect John Heah, and Japanese firm KKS.

Todd Longstaffe-Gowan devised the landscape while Tonkin Liu has designed a café for the site.
