Designed by five renowned architects, Phoenix Property Investors showcases 28 luxury houses in The Master Collection, Taipei

Phoenix Property Investors from Hong Kong recently unveiled The Master Collection in Taipei. Designed by five internationally renowned architects including Jim Olson, Richard Meier, Annabelle Selldorf, Steven Harris and Calvin Tsao. These houses offer mountain views in the Great Taipei New Town District.

Spanning from 6,372 sq-ft to 13,718 sq-ft, every house was individually crafted to fit the location and scenery. Five houses designed by Seattle-based architect Jim Olson were completed in the third quarter of 2016, while the remaining houses will be completed in 2018.

The Jim Olson Houses were built with a range of energy-efficient features including insulated glass windows for temperature control. The architect also incorporated a number of water features around the villas to enhance micro-climate of the houses. To prevent too much sunlight from penetrating, there is  large metal overhanging trellises and roofs that shade residents from the sun, wind and rain.

"I always feel that architecture should fit into its context. Buildings should melt into the landscape as if they grew there. In the case of The Master Collection, I fitted the houses into this dramatic vertical topography, which gives them a distinctive character and draw," says Olson.
