The design of the garden aims to create a representative, but playful surrounding for the people working in the offices, and people living in the block. The spatial design of the garden is like a framed picture.

The aim of the design is to create a familiar, homelike athmosphere, therefore the garden is furnished with objects could be found at home. In the center point of the garden there are large pebble shaped ceramic elements, made by Edit Szabó, from which water flows to form a little artificial pond.

Each office space has a deck of its own, in order to be able to sit outside. The plant usage is simple: from the green bamboo mass, Lilium flowers emerge.
