The layout had to be quite flexible and modular, so that it would allow focused work, meetings and presentations, with the support of whiteboards and media. Alternatively, this space would also cater for occasional activities by the local group, stimulating the team’s creativity.

The 60m² project has the look of an external water mirror where weather vanes and swings were placed for outdoor activities, integrated with the landscaping.
