The art gallery is interrupted by shared reception areas, which subdivide it into four office clusters. They are opened to the exterior light and city views and serve as executive waiting. Custom accent walls and drop ceilings define the waiting areas, while screening them from typical office services (copy, bathrooms, corridors etc.) They are constructed from Eucalyptus veneer wood panels, green onyx accent panels and are featured with granite display shelf.

A combination of two contrasting wood veneers was used for system furniture at office and assistance areas as well as custom conference furniture.
