A Tour of Voyage Group’s New Tokyo Office
Internet marketing services company Voyage Group recently hired interior design firm Semba Corporation to design their new office in Tokyo, Japan.
“The ofﬁce embodies the group’s corporate philosophy of “360-degree amazing” while also conveying a story of “voyage (travel over the sea).”
On the photogenic entrance ﬂoor, the center of which is made up of company bar Ajito, the space is connected seamlessly despite its different areas, including Lagoon, a café space with ﬂexible layout, Oasis, the company library that also serves as a concentration space, Hill, whose design attracts the eye to different levels, and Beach, where visitors can relax and even lie down.
When updating the ofﬁce from its traditional form, we aimed to achieve the principle of Activity Based Working (ABW), under which you change your workstyle depending on your task and Cultured ABW, which is based upon culture and creed. The entire ofﬁce is designed so that employees can change their work style according to their work at the time while also absorbing the culture and creed of VOYAGE GROUP.
The ofﬁce area on ﬂoors 16th and 17th have meeting rooms at the core of the ﬂoor while leaving the desk area as ﬂexible as possible. Also, by placing a deck laden with amenities, we intended to reduce the burden of the back ofﬁce and encourage communication between employees,” says Semba Corporation.
