Student Dormitory No. 13, National Chiao Tung University Hsinchu
The Dormitory is a structure with nine stories above and one below ground, situated at the southern border of Kuang Fu campus of the University. The site istriangular-shaped, with shallow depth; hence a Z-shape design was employed, with north-south light sources.
The building is set back in a saw-tooth fashion, thereby buffering the proximity of the street and allowing better breathing room in this limited space. Each dormitory room accommodates four students, with individual desk, bed and closet. A bath is shared by two rooms.
A recreation room with high ceiling connects every two floors, and there is a reading room on every floor. A dining room for 250 people, as well as a store for sundries and gym and laundry facilities are found in the basement. The set-back spaces on the eighth and ninth floors are designed as roof-gardens.
This dormitory houses 816 students and one counselor, occupies a total floor area of 11,920 sq.m., and had a construction cost of NT$168,000,000.
The completion date was in 1994.
