Peace Palace, Tapei

A Project by Lorenzo Tondelli

The luminous and mesmerising ‘Peace Palace’ located in the heart of Taipei boasts a total of 38 floors. The lobby, with its magnificent 17 meter high ceiling, hosts an incandescent light installation named “The Flight of the Cranes” which was imagined and created by the designer Lorenzo Tondelli.  The project divides the space in two different areas, the reception area and a convivial zone.

The reception is dominated by a monumental image that leaves a strong emotional impact on the visitor. This vertical development is enhanced by six, 40-foot-tall trefoil columns in white statuary marble, huge doors with visible hinges decorated with a geometrical motif and a light installation with 114 curved elements, LED lights and decorative elements in Murano glass.

The social area has a relaxing feel, with spaces equipped to receive and relax the property owners and their guests. The space is divided into three zones thanks to sliding doors: a social zone with a piano and a bar, a reading area and a living room.

The supporting structure of the building has been left exposed, lending this property a decorative and distinctive feel.
