According to the authors of the concept, the main thing in their work is not even space itself, and what a feeling it is from the office staff, their degree of personal comfort and related productivity.

"The secret garden" consists of a few cozy booths, located in an open loggia and is designed to operate outdoors using a laptop and WiFi network.

The "town-hall" called the room with high open ceilings for General meetings, communicating with the reception area. It accommodates up to 200 people and is equipped with a large video wall. The name "Granny Flat" speaks for itself. Here in the relaxation area, you can see vintage furniture, thick rugs, hand-embroidery, cute trinkets, hand-made.
