The new office design for AhnLab was based on the base concept of “horizontal communication”. The Steven Leach Group proposed a sensuous space to stimulate the creative ideas and tap the infinite imagination of its employees. Upon entering the lobby the “AhnLab Steps” welcomes the visitors, an element suggestive of the famous Spanish Steps in Rome. Here people can gather round to chat, or can even hold lectures and seminars. The subtle flexibility of function is integrated into the base design of this office. These welcoming steps are not merely a linkage between two spaces, but a destination in itself — an open cultural space for diverse functions.
