By blending the concept of park for resting and enjoying, and working place, we designed the programs of stepped garden, JungJa, bar, lounge, etc, to enjoy the free strolling. Thereby, all the places are characterized as various places of working we expected to improve the efficiency of working by interaction of hybrid behavier, working, resting, strolling.
