Text description provided by the architects. Located behind main hall of 20-storey office building, named Thanh Cong, the office is designed to be a highlight of the whole first floor space of the building in which interior designs is at nowhere near contemporary design. In demand jobs with fresh and modern designs, the office space is expected to be inspiration for designers working inside and for those who pass by the chamber. Actually, this idea has succeeded in attracting attentions from the outside.

Particularly, the design get benefits from chosen of materials of glass and gypsum since transparency of big glass curtain walls running from floor to ceiling, being paired to each others without any mullions; associating with brightness from white color of plaster, have effected on perception about a large, open, and unified space that is relatively small with area of 90 square meters (6m x 15m), and height of 3.9 meters. In addition, this combination creates visible comfort as visions are not blocked at any directions, enabling friendly and open communications from people.

Yet, emerging on the room is another glass box. This is a box in a box, called by people the 'house in the house', where the director-team leader works. It is surrounded by transparent glass panels on its three faces and on ceiling while plaster board is used for the last facade, which carries company's logo seen behind the reception bar that consists essentially of stacked long wooden boxes composed in form of horizontal moves. The glass house within the glass room embodies connection of people and moves occurring around the place, bringing the balance and harmony to the entire interior.

Likewise, furniture systems and utilities are designed following simplified style and contemporary trend which are widespreading in the world. White color on large table and big bookcase and intentional darkness on carpet enable contrast of tones when nuetral tone from glass material adds more depth to the feel. Another remarkable highlight is the white painted bookcase, it is heart of the office, a library and a gallery. Books always are vital property of any design firms, it is no exeptional here. A large amount of books, along with decorations are orderly and tidily furnished on the selves. Lighting system also is an important element in contribution to the design. Decorative lights in long box shape work in association with big sphere form lights generate not only adequate intensity of light but also an ornamental factor in the air.

In conclusion, it is believed in here that an open, comfortable, and modern office environment, as a representation of a democratic community, will bring creativity and voluntary contributions before resulting in effectiveness and quality of design jobs and designers are expected to be likely working in their house, full of inspired energy.
