One of the most powerful and enduring trends now reshaping today’s workplace is reconnecting people with nature. This is called biophilic design.
Biophilic design is based on the premise that humans have an innate need to connect with nature, and that when this connection is made, it results in better health, concentration, creativity, and work performance. To achieve this in our design scheme, we endeavour to make the most of Natural Lighting, Flowing Water, Plants and natural materials.

Today’s cutting-edge companies are now using an office design plan called Activity-Based Working. What this means is that an employee can work anywhere in the office that suits his or her current activity. We have designed different work settings to cater to various moods of working.
1. Open Office Areas – These are areas of the office workspace that have a more traditional type of seating arrangement where workers are seated very close to one another without any walls or cubicle barriers separating them.
2. Privacy Areas – These are either small, enclosed, sound-proof booths or isolated quiet areas that allow a person to make confidential or private phone calls. These booths or areas may also be used to hold discreet meetings between 2-4 employees.
3. Quiet Focus Areas – These are areas where people can concentrate deeply without distractions from others. The type of setting can range from an isolated armchair to a tiny room that is sound-proof.
4. Lounge Areas – These are areas with very relaxed and cozy seating and will have such things as sofas, couches, armchairs, pod seats, and coffee tables. These areas are suitable for a variety of different activities including impromptu meetings,
5. Café Areas – These are areas where people can sit down to eat lunch or snacks. They are ideal places for people to casually brainstorm new ideas, discuss the latest project, or run into old colleagues and find out what they are currently up to.
