CDC Xin Dian

CDC Xin Dian
Taipei, Taiwan


CDC Xin Dian is a new residential tower currently under construction in the southern part of New Taipei City, Taiwan. The project contains 144 residential units, amenities, and ground-level retail.

The site is bounded by two distinct geographies: to the north and west, the tower has unobstructed views, looking out over the low-rise portion of the city, while to the east and south, the tower looks to adjacent high-rise structures. This prominent position, as a gateway between the two geographies, called for a building that was distinctive and reflective of the duality of the site.

To express this, façade treatments vary depending on the building face: the low-rise facing façade is expressed in a more horizontal language, while the high-rise facing side is expressed more vertically. The result is a light and airy building, expressed in clean, modern lines.
