The project is inspired by vernacular Chinese elements. The idea is to connect the surrounding woods with parks within the site that are conceived as layered fields, taking inspiration from Chinese rice fields. The layered landscape surrounds the ellipse-formed towers to create a homogeneous relationship.

The wood facade is inspired by ancient vernacular Chinese architecture. The depth of the ellipse formed rings on each floor changes according to orientation and program. The use of bamboo on the residential balconies should amplify the feeling of nature. The green rooftops will offer impressive views towards the surrounding woods and nature of Taiping.
