They created a tree-like structure around an existing concrete column, with book shelves and benches for reading and relaxing.

Wooden 'branches' were constructed around the column, and the ceiling panels were painted in different shades of green.

The space consists of a 40 metre long hallway with a 10 metre square space at the end.

The hallway was designed with an industrial approach, while the square space has more of a “nature”-touch.
