    The roof is used as a main element in the design to emphasize the whole structure, and differentiate it from most office buildings. Also using wood as the primary material is a commercial way, as the company is specialized in the woodworking industry.

Also using wood as the primary material is a commercial way, as the company is specialized in the woodworking industry. The rest of the facade is made of glass, which is very useful to allow natural light in during the day time, and thus, it can reduce the energy consumption of the building.
