The large volume, including working activities, is planned in the site with planted trees. Various places are created in the one volume with different width, height and depth, sceneries from a window and relationship between in-outside by designing inside spaces and gardens equivalently as spatial elements. The large reflective ceiling on the volume integrates inside elements with various colors and lights from outside – changing with different seasons, climates and time.

Varicosity of the garden transforms from one volume into a heterogeneous space with group of different places. Body experience in the volume changes dramatically according to seasons, weathers and activities. This project proposes a new approach to office design, which enables us to choose working places not only by function or work typology, but also by the experiential qualities of a space and its effect on the human body through reflected nature.
