Office Concept

T(OWN)

A small town where people who sympathize with kaonavi’s services and philosophy gather
kaonavi let its employees choose where to work. They can come in to the office or work remotely. So, we defined our office as “a place where people who sympathize with kaonavi’s services and philosophy gather” and not as “a place you go to work”.

We came up with the concept of “T(OWN)” because the way people with different individualities come together and collaborate looks as if they are forming a small “town”, and we want them to use the office as if they “own” it.

Featuring a variety of spaces such as a space inspired by a hotel lounge as well as a café space, our office functions as a hub where employees can gather casually and facilitates serendipitous communication among the employees every day.
