We take a holistic approach to health in the built environment addressing behavior, operations, and design. The green heart: In the middle of our building, there is 700m2 forest. A green heart. This heart will be visible from every part of the building and provide not only a beautiful and special experience but a real ecological machine that keeps the temperature in the building moderate and pleasant and also actively purifying the air using only air purifying plants.
