It co-operate & attract designers, architects and creative people who appreciate quality, who are willing to share new ideas & work together for developing the modern design concept. The architects moved away from the traditional space planning view, they are freed from the complex horizontal design, and looked towards the space as art-object, a single whole of design & functional, which includes the basic zones.
The space consists of blocks, parallelepipeds, located at different heights. Each of them perform own function & tasks: work space, meeting area, coffee-point.
