The interior garden or greenhouse is the heart of L'Oreal's spacious Kyiv office. Just as the desire for nature is the essence of human being, the TABOORET team has placed a green oasis at the very center of the workspace.

The interior garden is a place for employees to relax. Here they can reboot, take a break from the noise of work and plunge into the atmosphere of tropics without leaving the office.

The atmosphere of relaxation and harmony is created not only through visual images, but is complemented by sounds - the meditative birds’ singing from the speakers. By design the interior garden resembles a greenhouse. Inside a special microclimate was created with the help of high-tech ventilation and air conditioning equipment.

The library has become an ideal application to the interior garden. It is a hearth of calm and a place where you can retire for a while or work in silence. It also has its own microclimate and is equipped with additional noise insulation.

The library is separated from the interior garden with sliding system, which is made in the same style as the garden. Both spaces can be combined into one spacious recreation area with birdsongs and cozy corners.
