This project employs a vacuum-envelope system to envision a new concept for the office. Under vacuum, the tensile membrane is both lightweight and insulating, enclosing a park-like space that liberates the workspace from the banality of the commercial interior. Light-filtering plantings and simple wood decks realize a pastoral of the contemporary workplace.
