Text description provided by the architects. Concept: Tree Office – A comfortable office surrounded by trees Built in rich nature, the “Tree Office” is smoothly covered by the forest-like façade named SONG WALL.

SONG WALL – a gentle and welcoming façade: The façade is feature of the factory which is wrapping around the building just like tree trunks of surrounding forest. SONG WALL also stands for: S = Sunshine (controlled light) O = Open (sense of liberty) N = Nature (connection with nature) G = Grove façade (surrounded by tree trunks).

An opened office area: Office area has no columns, opened to east side green and gives the workers sense of liberty. Colours of the forest: Inside forest is full of colours. Each colour has its own effect and the colour inside office helps people to switch their feelings. Sign designed in branches and vines: Just like making wreath from forest vines, we had made signs from branch and vines of forests.
