The office is where we spend most of our time, it is a space for work, but yet, it should be a space for calmness and clarity of mind in order for one to produce the best work - "a natural sensibility."
The design taste was to be aligned with the corporate identity of Mitsubishi Estate Vietnam and their existing office in Ho Chi Minh City. With the use of natural materials, local textures and natural light the design language achieved a space that was suitable and pleasant to be in. With careful consideration of the sequence and daily habit of the office staff, each experience is carefully crafted and customised for pleasant working - every day.
The entrance gallery is furnished with sustainable natural materials, namely bamboo and rattan panels, derived from local Vietnamese influences, and pebble wash derived from traditional Japanese stone garden influences as a way to invite guests.
A large meeting room with minimalist, light colored and smooth finishes provide a formal atmosphere for productive discussion.
Reflective glass finishes and artificial greenery provide a delightful mix of textures.
A moveable partition divides the office into main working space and the pantry, giving flexible options for working and rest in a limited space.
To prevent distractions or disturbance, the moveable partition can be closed to divide the office separately from the pantry space.

The furniture was carefully selected to adapt for each use. The tables and chairs in the open meeting space were selected for their specific height, to allow work to be conducted in a relaxing manner while overlooking the city view.
A cozy nook for staff members to do private work, take meals or personal rest.
