The concept of this office is Spontaneous Communication where workers can hold private meeting in cubicle layout office but for the team project it is necessary to build open space so that people can interact and collaborate each other in the office. This office is designed to encourage open communication among the workers.

The hardest part was to balance team and individual. To realize both open space and private area at the same time, cubicles were installed two stairs lower than the hallway so that the partition does not disturb communication between workers while giving a sense of privacy. Deliberately set up informal spaces are another feature, comfy sofas and small tables encourage communication and teamwork.
