A New Workspace

We have recently completed a new studio for ourselves in Cyberjaya where spaces are conceived as a series of dark and light zones to suggest quiet and livelier collaborative working environments. The main working studio has a layout that is light-filled and open, allowing everyone in the EJA family to sit together in a single tall space, creating a vibrant and efficient communicative environment.
