Head office building

Head office building


The entire floor of the head office building has become an atrium giving those inside a sense of space and cleanliness. Also by using natural sunlight, the building works as a smart office.
At the reception lobby, visitors will be greeted by the PixCell-Double Muse statue, a work in the motif of a godess that rules over intellectural action and symbolizes the source of creation.
