Construction Project Visits (in English)

Itinerary 1: Treasure Dragon Corp. ─ Sunny Happiness Gendii

location:No. 88 Meiman East Lane 3 Xitun Dist., Taichung city 407, Taiwan (R.O.C)
Range:5103 m2 /3 floors underground. 15 floors on the ground
Construction period:2011-09 to 2013-10

Sunny Happiness Gendii aimed to achieve “A residence inside the park” with breeze, light, water and greenery. The project is situated in Taichung,Taiwan, south of Taichung Gateway park. The project signifies a future realization of Taichung City’s low carbon living and eco-friendly environment.  Apart from the generous setback all around the complex, the main entrance was designed to face a park. The vegetation in our community is extended to join the greenery in the park nearby. Public arts are incorporated to re-define the meaning of the place, and to obtain positive publicity.

The green seed-shaped entrance hall has become the new landmark of the city meaning “start”, “hope” and also “future.” It can be said in another way around, people, architecture, neighborhood, city, plenty of possibilities. Meanwhile, the project introduced the concept of “infobox” which makes public spaces into separate units to accomplish our goal of good air circulation and energy saving. By introducing air, water and sunlight, all these sustainable resources into the building helped to boost the interaction between the project and neighboring environment. Hence, a life style of eco-friendly, energy-saving, low-waste and healthy house is created.

The company insist on life-long after sales service and highest quality constructions and their motto is “For the things you can see, we do our best. For the things you cannot see, we always use our heart, do our best and also would like to bring people happiness.”
