In the bustling city with economic dynamism, Tuning Zone was designed based on the concept of “Oasis stimulating the human five senses”, as an organic space by fusing greenery, light, sound and scent in nature as if in a forest. Plenty of planters with full of greenery, such as black bamboo, shefflera and other evergreen trees are installed. The space looks integrated with the outdoor green plaza which will be completed in a few years, with the view of the Imperial Palace beyond as a landscape.

The space is naturally lit, with sunlight and an interior/exterior lighting environment, adjusted to harmonize with natural light by the time of day. The high-resolution sound files of the forest, river and waves recorded in nature are constantly playing to create a relaxing atmosphere.

一个由柏木制成的艺术球体装置成为大厅中的亮点，装置由Aeneas Wilder设计制作，所用的柏木则出自业主公司自己的森林。这个木材堆叠而成艺术品成为“Tuning Zone”的标志，欢迎着往来的客人与员工。独特的堆叠方式成就了装置引人注目的外观造型，代表了对自然循环、灵感与挑战精神的致敬。
A sphere of art made of cypress wood from the company-owned forest was created by Aeneas Wilder. This is the symbol of Tuning Zone made by stacking wood one by one and it welcomes guests and employees. This artwork changes its looks depending on how the woods are stacked, celebrating nature’s self-circularity, inspiration, and challenging spirit.
