Park City Hotel. Danshui Taipei


  位於淡水的原中信飯店,也在經過一系列的品牌再造後,正式更名為成旅晶贊飯店,隸屬於成旅觀光(Global Hospitality) 旗下的一品牌系統。該品牌的嶄新定位為一休閒商務型飯店,以開闊心靈、釋放生活壓力The hotel where the little extras don’t cost extra!作為該飯店的核心理念。企業識別色為褐、綠兩色,呼應一種城市綠洲的概念。其中,Logo以綠樹,營造樂活的輕鬆意象,提供顧客在住宿上,自然、舒適、自在、便利、快捷、物超所值等多重價值。


  由於該基地本身屬於一狹長型基地,在空間配置上,首先將原本坐落在左側內凹的服務櫃檯區拉出至右側,並將大門入口的中軸線重新整併往左偏移,一路對中至電梯廳,以一黑色亮面鍍鈦的立體框體強化入口深度,創造出開闊大器的迎賓意象。室內空間前半段為緩衝地帶,作為寬敞的等候與休憩區,使進入的旅客不會直接面臨櫃台;後半部才是check in服務櫃檯區。



  由於成旅晶贊飯店的環境特色即是擁有水岸美景以及淡水河邊紅樹林生態保護區的絕佳視野,因此設計師在休憩區利用一幅落地鏡面,下方部份擷取了淡水夕陽的攝影作品以膠膜拓印在鏡面上,使得設計細節中注入了在地意象的連結與歷史感的呼應。整體施作上,為了烘托出空間的精緻度,在細部工法施作上,沒有簡化任何細節,以便展現出Boutique Hotel的精緻優雅。

Park City Hotel. Danshui Taipei

The Park City Hotel is in the former China Trust Hotel, located on a site facing the Danshui River. The recent opening up between the Mainland and Taiwan has increased the number of tourists and business visitors and the renovation program of this old hotel adds it to the list hoping to join in the competition for the expected business opportunities in the future.

The Park City Hotel is a member of the Global Hospitality Team; the team’s management idea is derived from its slogan: “The hotel where the little extra don’t cost extra.” Also, the team’s icon reveals a eco-friendly ideology; at the center of the logo stands a big tree that indicates the position of the hotel and how it offers every convenience to its customers with a green idea attached to every facility and necessity.
JAHAA, the design group that accepted the commission to make changes to the hotel, proclaimed that the key issue of the change relied on a re-reading the site.
Because of the too narrow site and lacking of depth in the public space, the design team had to find new way to reshape the hotel. Its solution was to create a horizontal break-out ante-chamber and check-in space separating and thus increasing spatial layering. The main axis is deliberately shifted from the central position and a service table is created to twist around the orientation. These changes offer a liaison space in the front and allow clients to take a break before entering the second zone to check-in.
Mirrors clad the surface of the ceiling providing a push-up effect for a more spacious illusion. The changing pattern of the floor also increases spatial layering thus gaining visual expansion. The reception table is 30 degrees to the main axis; the change of direction opens up extra space for more dynamic contact between service people and customers. The big logo appears on the back partition of the reception area as an artistic representation of this chain hotel’s ideology regarding management.
The second floor public space is dedicated to a business center – “Forest Business Center.” Colors are taken from the logo while the hues were changed to fit into a space that intends to provide comfort rather than excitement.

The Park City Hotel is unique because of its site facing the river landscape, a sun-setting view and the mangrove laden Preservation Park. A ceiling-to-floor mirror was particularly adopted to improve the dialogue with the beauty of the views; photo images are printed on the surface of mirror. Despite the tight budget, JAHAA did not sacrifice detail design and good construction; it is expected that this middle-price hotel will reveal itself to be much like an expensive boutique hotel.
After my personal experience in the hotel, I did a web-search and found many articles on the “before and after opinion” of the hotel. JAHAA’s efforts have paid off because many applauded the changes and the value has been reshaped.
