First off, the trees dotting this brand new office for a children's clothing manufacturer, Lenne, in Taillinn, Estonia, are not real—at least not completely. Made from a combination of real trunks and artificial foliage, these 16-foot-high trees were planted as part of local firm KAMP Arhitektid's revamp of a Soviet-era factory. As architect Jan Skolimowski explains, "We have created a room that regardless of the season outside makes you feel as in a bright summer forest, even if the birches and maples are not real." Angular compartments break down the larger factory hall into smaller, multilevel work areas, creating a dynamic, part new, part old, part real, part artificial office.
