RSHP to design the Four Seasons first hotel in Taiwan

14 February 2023

We are delighted to announce our new project in Taipei    in collaboration with Yuan Lih Construction   for the    Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. Located in the Xinyi District, directly opposite Taipei 101 and measuring 180 metres, the 260-room hotel will be the first Four Seasons Hotel in Taiwan.  

“We are excited to collaborate with Yuan Lih and Four Seasons on this exceptional project. Through three significant outward facing spatial gestures across its elevation, the hotel will embrace the immediate public realm at street level, the rapidly growing Xinyi District at mid-level and Taipei’s iconic mountain setting at its peak, together creating a landmark building that is very much of its place”

“With a focus on guest experience and wellbeing, the team has carefully orchestrated the interactions between the hotel and its surroundings. Every journey and every space will have its own moment.” Ivan Harbour, Senior Design Partner, RSHP.

“At Yuan Lih Construction Co., Ltd., we are focused on creating projects that maximise land value while creating exceptional architectural landmarks, and we look forward to achieving these goals again with a new state-of-the-art building in Taipei. We are proud to be opening a top international landmark hotel for Taiwan and are very pleased to do so in partnership with Four Seasons – one of the world’s leading luxury hospitality brands.”    Mr. Lin Ming-Hsiung, President of Yuan Lih Construction Co., Ltd.

“This is our second partnership with Yuan Lih - and we are truly delighted to be participating in the design of this building with both Yuan Lih and the Four Seasons Hotel. Together with its unique architectural form and central location opposite Taipei 101, it will surely become an important and iconic landmark – another amazing addition to the lively Xinyi area.”    Benjamin Warner, Director, RSHP (Asia)

“Taipei has long been a target destination for Four Seasons as we look to expand our presence in Asia’s most important cities. We are tremendously excited to announce our upcoming hotel in Taipei together with our partners at Yuan Lih Construction Co., Ltd. This project will be a destination of choice in Taipei for both locals and travellers, combining thoughtful design, world-class restaurants and bars, and of course personalized service by incredible Four Seasons people.”    Bart Carnahan, President, Global Business Development and Portfolio Management, Four Seasons.

Construction of the hotel is already underway and will target Taiwan Green Building Rating Gold and a minimum LEED silver.
