Office Ballpark allows the mood of the company to be experienced minute-by-minute by everyone that works there much the same as a sporting event.
It is organized around a field of amenities and events with two raised opposing clusters of workstation and communal islands called working piles. A spiral elevated networking loop consisted of shared conference rooms and kitchens interconnects work piles on both sides.
The field holds the interaction between visitors and employees. Underneath the field, a vast terminal with drop-off and pick-up spots leads people to the field area through multiple ramps and stairs. A ramp of broad walks connects these areas from bottom to top.
