Kazuo Jibiki says: “Located in the heart of Tokyo, Biotope Enokizaka is a new ‘third-space concept’ that combines the resources of a state-of-the-art business center with the relaxing, communal environment of a coffeehouse. It offers mobile workers a comfortable, professional environment complete with designer chairs, a variety of workspaces and meeting facilities, computers with secure internet access, and luxurious, contemporary conference rooms… Designed by up-and-coming interior artists Tonerico Inc., the open lounge areas feature comfortable seating, while separated booths provide a more private space for individual workers… Recharge outlets allow clients to charge electronics, and the library offers current news publications to keep busy professionals informed, along with various ‘eco’ related books.”
