However the manager rooms and some individual departments are planned into the closed spaces. The interior space of the office, which is belonging one of the leading companies in their own field, is created for having the feeling of transparency and coziness. Moving from this point, the entrance hall and meeting room is highlighted. The mirror suspended ceiling is used into the meeting room to increase the visual height for feeling into the larger space. Additionally because of having different usage in the same room, an automation controlled curtain system is divided into meeting area and seating platform.
The interior design of the manager rooms are created into different style according to the owners personal preferences. Thus two of the manager rooms are designed as semi classic and classical style rather than the rest of all spaces which are designed as modern style.
The circulation and corridor is planned in the inner circular zone which is defined with acoustic ceiling and different floor covering. This area enlarges with the cafeteria space into the center of the office. The cafeteria is used with visitors and personnel’s for lounge and small meetings.
