You notice the idea of ‘restraint’ as a design element as you pass by the waiting lounge, the business garden, and the workspace. Your vision seamlessly merges from one space to another, thereby avoiding any visual clutter and embracing simplicity, enabling you to truly appreciate the subtle nature-inspired details evident in the wooden finishes, the daylight gracefully shifting throughout the day, illuminating the space, the biophilia, and the glass that adds a dramatic reflection and depth in this still and calm environment.
