Description: The business centre is aesthetically designed with the conceptual pivot of the tree trunk. The tree itself is part of the natural habitat, comparing it to the facility reinforces the objective to build a self-sustained ecosystem of professional talents in the long term. This also sees the use of wood skin wall panels with stainless steel and the minimal use of stone, aiming to create a luxe and sustainable finishing, yet projecting an evergreen appearance.

The whole InnoSquare project is likened to a tree in all sense. Located on 2/F as an open podium, the entrance of the business centre is the first thing that comes into sight for the building visitors. Careful consideration has been made to decorate the reception curvaceous wall in irregular wooden and stainless-steel strips that alternate to imitate a strong tree trunk that reflects the intertwining relationship between the nature and technology of the hub. With such imagery, we hope the visitors to immediately associate the facility with a place to nurture ideas just like a tree houses different living organisms, while the stainless-steel strips symbolise the target InnoHK users of technology
