Symbiotic Villa

Zaha Hadid Architects as Architects

Symbiotic Villa stands amongst lush vegetation in northern Taipei. Deriving its fluid form from a distinctive roofline, this structure emerges naturally from the supporting topography through a series of geometric cones, creating an harmonic tension between built form and environment which echoes the Chinese philosophy of Yin Yang.


Cones afford flexible open floor plans and visual connections with the surrounding landscape. Circulation is unified through the spaces surrounding them on both ground and upper floors, while each cone provides a defined interior space – with one supporting vertical circulation, the other offering a quiet space for meditation and relaxation. Continuing through the upper floor, each cone ultimately forms a cut to create outside terraces and balconies.
