Within the sustainable setting of a Tao Zhu Yin Yuan Residential Tower, designed by Paris-based architect Vincent Callebaut, a Valcucine kitchen combines technology, science and a sense of elegance inside a luxury apartment in Taipei.
The project is a perfect fusion of Western and Oriental technology and culture. The residential tower is directly inspired by the double-helix structure of DNA, the source of life and the symbol of harmony, and reflects upon the idea of ultimate balance. That is why, the primary goal of the plant-covered twisting tower, is to promote and facilitate the concept of carbon-absorbing buildings, in order to slow down or even reduce the increasing global temperature.
The kitchen area was totally designed by Valcucine Taiwanese partner Hua Pin. «The Genius Loci – the company explains – with its clean lines, timeless aesthetic and hand-crafted workmanship was the owner first choice to reflect the sophistication and refinement of the home’s existing interior, whilst serving as centre stage for the home owners who love to entertain. The elegance of the entire flat is encapsulated in this island composition by the choice of the Distressed Copper metal finishes and the choice of the Genius Loci top in Cardoso natural stone».
