The office space may be imagined as a static typology in our collective unconscious, but in fact is a dynamic and constantly re-evaluated place, requiring a high degree of flexibility and choices for how it can be put to use. In this case the office is organized simply into 4 zones; meeting, support, work, and relaxation. The last two are entwined and can be opened and closed to each other as needed. Glass walls and rotating panels separate most of the spaces in a direct manner. Storage and similar functions are accommodated with the use of large frames on either side of the office, which can be filled with cabinets, equipment or other materials as needed.
