Description: Beyond the solemnity of common law firms, this law firm is lively with a tree under “skylight”, a calculated lighting by reflection. Floored by external pavers, it is an internal courtyard for chilling out. The “skylight” creates an impression of sky above, extends beyond vertically thru a relative low ceiling. The waiting area and meeting rooms borrow views from courtyard thru various openings. The firm also extends beyond horizontally by including common lobby and reflecting sea view by mirror.
