'BIG' recently constructed a stunning mountain-shaped resort that is designed to appeal to retirees. Recent changes in travel permissions between Taiwan and China mean that there is a growing demand for holiday homes in the region. This Taiwanese resort provides a luxurious option for retirees that are still interested in pursuing active vacations.

The 'Hualien Residence' is located in Hualien City, Taiwan, which falls between the ocean and the surrounding mountains. Although the city has seen a constant decline in its population over the years, there is a growing number of tourists who are interested in vacationing in the area. The Hualien Residence is designed to appeal to retirees and other tourists visiting the region. The building itself features a zigzagging roof that mirrors the profile of the surrounding mountains. The angled silhouette maximizes the spectacular views and helps to flood the homes with natural light.

The Hualien Residence offer a luxurious option for older travelers visiting Taiwan.
