No.599, Zhongshan Rd., Yuchi Township, Nantou County 555, Taiwan (R.O.C.)
The Lalu (涵碧樓) is no doubt one of the most luxurious hotels in Sun Moon Lake, and just on the other side of the Lalu sits the eye-catching Xiangshan Visitor Center. It was designed by Dan Norihiko (團紀彥), the architect behind the Terminal One of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. Built in 2010, Xiangshan Visitor Center is an organic architecture that promotes harmony between human habitation and the natural world.
Composed of two beautifully curved buildings, Xiangshan Visitor Center seems to boast very cutting edge architectural designs, but give it a second look, you will realize that it actually stands out for its greyish white architecture and fair-faced concrete surfaces. As simple and original as it can be, Xiangshan Visitor Center is dominated by a touch of zen and in perfect harmony with the world around it. It has great views from the floor-to-ceiling windows, where beams of sunlight get to shine through. Visitors can even go up to the rooftop and have a stroll in the lush greenery, appreciating the sheer beauty of Sun Moon Lake.
