TIME IS MONEY reflects corporate image and mission. With the employment of stainless steel material, deconstructed elements of a timepiece are reassembled to create the floating of time in rapid economic development during the industrial era. The wall is built with stones that unintentionally imitate those used in medieval castles. The theme of TIME is engaged through such integration of antique and modern elements.
To accommodate different needs, movable partition panels are adopted for fast and efficient change of size from a small room that seats six participants to a big auditorium that accommodates a hundred participants, allowing for a better and more intelligent use of space.
