Taichung, La Bella Vita

Living the good life is an idea, a lifestyle that brings body, mind, senses and reason into balance, an approach that masterfully mingles Mediterranean and East Asian. This concept coalesced in Taiwan with La Bella Vita, a massive residential project by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel ‒ an expression of “total design” that has consistently defined their work.

Located in Taichung, the skyscraper is just steps from Charlotte Park, near the most sought-after shopping streets and cultural hot spots in this part of Taiwan. The impressive landmark is made up of complementary yet intersecting towers. The hub is a 37-story central core clad in a hexagonal pattern of amber glass that is embraced by four slightly lower towers where roomy balconies and hanging gardens add to the appeal.

The interior spaces were designed to connect the 168 residential units through shared spaces, almost like private squares where people can eat, relax, get together, read, and exercise ‒ nurturing body and spirit alike. These common areas are also furnished with an array of Flexform pieces, specifically the Happy, Leda, Feel Good and Hera armchairs, Campiello sofa and Ascanio, Fly and Este coffee/side tables along with Crono, Gelsomina and Leda chairs and Zefiro tables.
