Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – IT services company Evolable Asia’s new workspace in Vietnam provides employees with a faux-alfresco atmosphere for collaboration and discussion – as a refuge from computer desks and digital screens. The park-in-an-office design by 07Beach in partnership with Studio Happ aims to stimulate creativity in the multinational workforce.
Evocative of a rolling hillside, the slightly raised lawn surface undulates through the common areas of the workspace, which comprises five floors. Doubling as seating for a large social event or as a lounge area for a daily mindfulness practice, the sprawling green is surrounded by tropical plants that emphasize the atmosphere of the outdoors. White birdcage-like seating areas that recall gazebos are bathed by the natural light that pours in through the floor-to-ceiling windows, brightening the airy space. The overall effect is playful – an enjoyable environment that invites employees to take off their shoes and lie on the grass.
