Aedas’ pebble-like office building nears completion in Taipei

Global architecture and design studio Aedas has released renderings of Lè Architecture, a pebble-like office building based in the southeastern Nangang District of Taipei, Taiwan.

The design of the 18 story building is inspired by a moss covered pebble, and has a facade covered in greenery split into vertical chunks.  

At night, a mixture of various lighting effects and glazed windows aims to make Lè Architecture look like a gem.

The "efficient, interactive and healthy" structure is aiming to achieve LEED Gold status and contains modifications for light shading and temperature control.

The 14,000-sq-m project has an "urban living room" along with kitchens, libraries and "brainstorming spaces".

The project client is Earnest Development & Construction Corporation.

"Pebbles that stay close to the riverbanks always have a green coat of mosses, giving the polished stones a unique texture," said Aedas, according to Inhabitat.

The company added that the building’s egg-like shape "implies that it is an incubator of knowledge".

The project is due to be completed in 2017.
