02 TAINAN MAK­ING A SPLASH

Identity - - ANTENNAE -

Dutch ar­chi­tec­tural com­pany MVRDV has re­vealed plans for a Y-shaped villa with a swimming pool in­cor­po­rated into its an­gu­lar roof. The 330-square me­tre pri­vate res­i­dence will form part of a new res­i­den­tial com­mu­nity on the out­skirts of this Tai­wanese city. It is to be con­structed from con­crete, with large cir­cu­lar holes form­ing win­dows in the ex­te­rior walls. Cir­cu­lar open­ings in the ceil­ing will of­fer views of the pool over­head while bed­rooms will be lo­cated on the lower lev­els, in­clud­ing a mas­ter suite, two chil­dren’s rooms and a guest space. A land­scaped gar­den will in­clude a small pool, lawn and plant­ing ar­eas.
