Text description provided by the architects.

With the surrounding sunshine, the vitality of greenery extends to the inner space, brings out many possibilities of government infrastructure. We aim to create an environmental-friendly, multi-functional, and efficient working area that breaks the stereotype of a traditional office structure.

We decided to break with tradition and bring inflexible design, also infusing traditional Taiwan “eat together” culture, which represents the big family relationship between the New Taipei City government and its citizen.

Aside from a one-way traditional conference, by separating the curving desk and galvanized iron sheets slides back and forth, people can join into different groups to start conversations while the speaker gives his speech. The design of a translucent curtain in the conference area maintains privacy and the broadness of visual sight.

By using the new design method, we reduce the waste of disposable materials and using recycled materials for table pillars. We giving back the space using rights to users, and meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, accomplish our goal of changing our usual daily conference image. We’re giving back space to the right of users.
