Design edit

Designed by the Milan-based architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners (ACPV), the building combines Italian elements with Taiwanese culture, generating a tower composed of seemingly disjoint, yet complementary volumes, which symbolise the unique rock formations found in Taiwan.[4][5] The exterior façade of La Bella Vita consists of a honeycomb-style crystalline-structured window that allows natural light into the building.[6] The tower offers 168 residential units overlooking the cityscape of the fast-emerging Taichung's 7th Redevelopment Zone.[7]
