Because there were few windows in space of existence, you were a very small and dark image. So I took a big opening for the southeast and the southwest plane and also made it as high-ceilinged as possible. As a result, it’s to divide born open space by the green partition which is the corporate color of the company, and I’m planning for settlement of the accent and an image of a company. It was important to see outside from the interior and the interior from outside as the former clear office, not closed space.
Southeastern space in a building, a bench and a wall are made together as the deck terrace which connects from the interior. A wall is to block outside off and is the space where you can talk business calmly comfortably from each meeting booth. It’s possible to use it as a walk and rest space as the esplanade where you can go through to the neighborhood. I don’t go through straight by planting a tree at random, but I intend to stop slowly. I’m also working on an environmental issue aggressively by using the resin deck which are recycling items.
