Before Sunrise Seaview B&B

Country / Region

Taiwan

Sunrise, coconut trees, the South Seas, and a boundless expanse of ocean blue – basking in the Pacific breeze, all you see is serenity. This is the daily sea view, where nature's healing touch finds its best sanctuary amidst the architecture. These are the advantages. However, Hualien remains somewhat remote, with a slight disparity from the bustling urban centres. Acknowledging this difference, we decided to position our guesthouse visually as a conveyer of sophistication and style, aiming for exquisite interior design as our hardware, incorporating elements appealing to influencers and other social media cultures. This strategic move allows for both publicity and differentiation from the other traditional accommodations in the area. Following the current trends, we target a younger, international, and trend-conscious clientele, catering to their preferences to establish our boutique lodging as the epitome of East Coast chic.



The brand name "漫漫日出" (Màn màn rìchū) translates to "Before Sunrise," indicating that the space has already positioned itself for the best viewing angle before the sunrise. Correspondingly, the English name conveys the idea that the beauty of the surroundings has long awaited before the sunrise. This positioning of the spatial advantage in shaping the image of the environment is self-evident.



The building comprises six floors. The ground floor serves as a welcoming lobby, featuring a reception desk and a social space. It also includes a branded main visual wall, catering to past and future guests, enhancing their impression and aiding in social media check-ins. The lobby's decorations are finely selected, with facades featuring contrasting colours, creating an intriguing layering effect amidst shades of grey and white.



The ceiling is adorned with wooden lattice grids, while the tiles exhibit diagonal patterns. The counter is illuminated by the light strips, and the display windows have intricately carved partitions. The ambiance exudes a sense of refinement and elegance, creating a sophisticated atmosphere.
