Biophilic Gallery

Fresh Hope, a non-profit organization in Sydney, Australia, wanted an office that was an energizing space with user-friendly technology. They have a fresh natural landscape using natural materials like recycled timber flooring, or cardboard tubing made from recycled paper — making this space feel more forest-like and more invigorating.

The Veolia Office understands that first impressions are very important. They wanted their visitors to enter a new word and have a wonder encounter walking into the office. Inspired by the cycles of nature, they used elements such as vegetation, water and sand. Veolia also uses natural materials throughout the office – even the floor composition is made up of 90% recycled material!

Indeed’s new office in Tokoyo has all the modern technology any new office has. But it also has natural elements that create an oasis for all employees. The overall workspace has lots of landscaping, gentle lighting, and color — making this office a comfortable and serene place to work.
