comments: the exterior of the building is perforated with images of trees and its many windows are enveloped in bright colors. the tree motif is extended into the interior of the building which has images of trees and leaves throughout as well as live trees. the thought process for the design was based on making a happy, natural, refreshing and welcoming space for their customers and employees. The more than 24 colors used in the interior and exterior convey that happy feeling very well. exquisite.
