Lè Architecture (Office) by Aedas
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award Winner
The design for Taipei Lè Architecture draws inspiration from the shape of the river pebbles, it develops the unique aesthetic that conveys the idea of softness and elegance as well as strength and character. Located in close proximity to the Jilong River, the surrounding environment provided architects with opportunity to propose a building that will redefine the skyline of this rapidly developing district.
The office space is planned to provide a highly efficient yet healthy and inspiring working environment. Canti-levered communal space incorporates the ‘urban living room’ with pantries, coffee shops, libraries and brainstorming areas, to promote creativity and catalyse interaction between office users. It majorly attracts small IT companies that eagerly demands such flexible and exchangeable working environment.
Design Challenges
The project design is highly sustainable and is LEED gold certificated. A breathable building envelope is introduced to increase the flexibility and diversity of the architectural facade, as well as to control the heat gain. The vertical aluminum fins are designed with certain distance and depth, they perform to control the amount of sunlight coming into the building.
Production Technology
The 18 storey office building is conceived as an ‘incubator of knowledge’ where innovative ideas being exchanged and turned to reality. The rounded silhouette of the north and south façades taper as it gets higher. The enclosed curtain wall harmonizes the outer structure, creating a series of outdoor balconies offering unparalleled views for the users.
