The area sets the tone of the day with a concave inviting entrance and the sun dial—a signature design element on the ceiling top of the communal area. Mimicking the shadow hand of a sundial, the eye-catching design projects the power of the sun and a seamless spatial experience radiating from the central communal area. This is where town hall events and team meetings happen, and can fit up to 50 pax in a town hall setting. The space also features a coffee machine and movable height-adjustable workstations to enhance the way they work, as employees can enjoy greater agility through an open working atmosphere.
