The iconic building replicates the unique silhouette of a bamboo shoot – a plant commonly found in Taichung which symbolises prosperity in Chinese culture. This design is deemed to enrich the city skyline while celebrating a cultural symbol.

The faceted façade undulates with horizontal awnings with distinctive rain covers and window-walls to emphasise the unique shape and curves of the building. The elliptical shape allows maximum light penetration to the office area. Vertical greening with local plant resources on the east and west façades as well as the rooftop enhances energy efficiency. There are also balconies on each floor on the north and east sides to offer an outdoor experience with a pleasant view.

The interior space is designed with reference to traditional ink paintings – by using different shades and tones of grey, together with lights and reflections, to express different feels and create a sense of neutrality and calmness. Two podium floors with banks and food and beverage outlets activate the urban life on lower levels.
