It is an office building standing between trees. Here, we aimed at the office environment in which the worker could choice their best place with their instinct by feeling the surrounding cityscape and the changes of trees with their body. We created the continuous large space by organizing a “hut group” of closed functions such as warehouse and kitchen and “garden group” with seasonal feeling. There, the interior included the colors of four seasons by various large windows which cut the scenery of the townscape and the garden, mirrored ceiling and furniture of light color saturation. As a result, inhomogeneous and diverse location groups spread throughout the site.
In this project, we reviewed the original relationship between “environment” and “body” created by time and place, and reconstructed this idea as a comfortable office space. This was realized by the design which consider the different element integrally such as garden and furniture not only the building and the design method which cross the field.
