Moxy Taichung Hotel
MOXY combines a youthful and modern brand image with the local elements, creating an interactive space through design, and demonstrating the rich culture of Taichung as the day and night flow.
The traditional marble floor of Taiwan reflects the peach-red colour of the brand, leading tourist's visual sense to a new level, and the bright and warm stove at the end extends up out of the ceiling, which stirs out travellers' laughter in the atmosphere.
Box-shaped waveboards surround the ceiling, which represents integrating Taichung's thriving traditional industries into the design. By using iron roof material, zinc-coated wave board underneath, black translucent wave board above, just like city's energy floating through the air. The red brick wall and the original wall show the fusion of the military dependents' village and modern society.
We use game as a bridge to design social space with light dice chairs, square tables for conferences and games, and semiprivate spaces made up of hangers for trucks
Along the red brick stairway, away from the noisy lobby, we divide the soft space with objects people usually see at home. The expectation of Moxy hotel accommodation has been raised to bring fantastic sensory experiences to travellers.
