The Kelti Center sits at the end of a major street in the busy downtown Taipei. Its majestic form, delicate crystal-like glass volumes and the generous and beautifully crafted plaza, enabled the building to anchor the site and become a prominent landmark in this area.
Two low-rise volumes flanked by the service cores on each side and a high-rise crystal glass volume suspended from the “portal frame” make up the entire complex. The space between the lower volumes forms the building’s entrance. The building’s lower commercial levels are designated for showrooms and restaurants. The middle section houses the corporate offices, and the top floor is a sky-lit, 13.5-meter-high event hall with a spectacular view to the city. Natural sunlight streams into the restaurants in the basement from the expansive first floor lobby. The service cores are located on the north and south sides to give maximum flexibility for the spaces in between.
