The building is the headquarters of KCI group. As the industrial logistic center, besides basic function of storage, required functions including reception, office, conference and so on are all taken into consideration, and the final goal of image promotion is completed. The design is different from the conventional office which is with strict image, it tries to make the outlook of the building with fun. Combined with exposed floating concrete wall to create visual effect of lightening the building and create more extension of interior and outdoor, it provides more privacy for the building.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The office is near a 28 meter road. The green area is located at the retracted part below the building, and the floating exposed concrete is used to prevent the problem of noise, glare generated from cars and other issues. It not only reduces the external disturbance, but also improves the privacy in the office. The exposed concrete above leads the modest daylight in. A comfortable light source can be provided indoor at day. The planted vegetation in the wall can provide interior view and generate fragrance to whole room when Osmanthus is blown by cold breeze at night.

The second floor has a sofa area for maintaining employees’ relationship. It emphasizes on active public relationship to make the phenomenon in the office energetic. A lot of wooden materials are used to soften the blunt stereotype of office, make users feel relaxing and self-belonging, moreover, it brings everyone together. A logwood growing up from the 1F, outside the CEO's office unfolds the leaves gracefully, in front of the black tongue-and-groove plate to vibrant the dark alley.

The second floor balcony above the platform is a living area for internal employees.
