The design of the building’s interior surfaces draws inspiration from the idea of "green", "island" and "intelligence" that further developed into formal elements of "leaf", "wave" and "code". The texture is expressed in the language of points, lines and surfaces, which materialize, extend and stretch out in the building interior. Natural daylight from the lobby’s skylight is refined as it passes through the elements of "leaves" and columns that resemble trunks. Paving designed in the shape of waves further articulates the interior daylight. With such design details to emphasize the space’s ecological and cultural character, a contrast is formed against the walls’ pattern in an abstract form of digital matrix that represents smart technology.
