The main guest areas, Symphony and Sonata will be treated with elegance, offering a natural and open feel, easily transforming the space into a large performance hall and theatre. With a natural flow from entrance, to gallery/reception/cafe area, guests flow into the magical performance areas.

In certain areas through out the the space, green walls, mini atriums and tambour units with plants help invigorate staff with a sense of freshness and inspiration. Each workstation is also timber, with a solid return, transposing the zen-like Japanese culture and design language to each person in the company.
