The interior’s arched partitions are undoubtedly the most captivating feature, and serve to separate the disparate workspaces for the different departments, both of which connect to a communal space which contains the kitchen, a garden, and ample casual seating. “By creating the layout in a human-scale approach, with small groups and breathing spaces throughout, we provide the required privacy setting while maintaining a neutral hierarchy environment,” says the firm in a press release.
