Located in the western district of Chiayi City, creating a short stay for relaxation and peace of mind, which is different from the daily experience. With large floor-to-ceiling windows and balcony glass railings, the green street outside the window and the mountains in the distance can be seen. The room is decorated with large color blocks, showing the image of Chiayi pottery plates with a modern style.
The architecture form corresponds to the shape of the interior space with a simple frame, and the roof protrusion frame is diagonally pulled up by a flying sharp corner, which makes the overall shape lighter and represents the image of Chiayi's mountains.
The interior is decorated with local craft materials translated into interior elements. The public space is decorated with consistent stacked geometric color blocks. The concept comes from the layers of cut and glued tiles, mosaics and wire changes, as well as the use of co-zhi pottery. It leads visitors to understand traditional craftsmanship and explore Chiayi culture more deeply, which has become the highlight of the hotel design.
