Diamond Head Sapporo is a minimal office located in Sapporo, Japan, designed by BROOK Inc. with project management with HITOBA DESIGN co.,ltd.. The office is located in Hokkaido, the northernmost island of the country. Having this background, the design emphasized the color of snow and wood to create the feeling of nature. The main wooden materials used in the office were made in Hokkaido aiming the office to be relatable to the region. Employee well-being was also valued to enhance productivity and recruitment. The main floor is divided into the workspace and open meeting space by the sliding door, which generates a sense of openness.
Employees have a variety of sets of tables and chairs to work at in addition to individual workspace. There are also some different styles of meeting rooms including a Japanese traditional TATAMI style room where people could sit and relax on the raised floor. Special attention was paid not only to the workspace but also to the refreshment area, for example, food stalls and a grass hill made of mortar covered by soft fireproof artificial grass were prepared. This office would attract talent and reduce stress and improve mood for employees to perform at their best.
