The space that can constantly be updated to a better environment, just like how it is in the realm of internet, is designed to express the company’s tireless endeavor committed to enriching our lives and speedily delivering excellent new services. In the visitor area, the space is represented as an actual real-life portal site to illustrate the client’s identity. The traffic flow connecting each section of the floor is implemented so that everyone can roam around the floor with ease while arranging 7 areas each with conference rooms individually furnished with different interiors, designed to allow visitors to regularly encounter a new aspect upon every visit. The so-called “Lodge” area is not meant to be an ordinary co-working space, but is designed to function as an open collaboration space. We aimed at providing space that enables everyone to freely secure a flexible work environment where fresh communication constantly takes place. Several pieces of house-shaped furniture having different features such as bookshelf, white board and desk on each side are prepared, which can be joined together to form a partition. The area that functions as a café and the kitchen space available for anyone to cook are designed to stimulate active communication through eating. Through this open space which helps develop links between various people from inside and outside the company, new business ideas are being born. The office is always filled with energy and various events such as activities supporting startups in Africa or local regeneration are being held every day.
The number of secluded meeting rooms is reducing while implementing more spacious open meeting areas that can be used without any prior booking. Also, by accommodating co-working area available for anyone to use for free of charge, the environment with an open and free atmosphere is achieved where communication would naturally develop. Each of the approximately 5,700 workers is free to work anywhere within the free address office space and the location of each employee is made identifiable via Wi-Fi. The environment designed to vitalize both face-to-face as well as virtual communications is realized with the employment of in-house social networking service.
