The Main Entrance door is an artwork in itself, having a balanced composition of lines in the veneers and vertical green walls at the adjoining walls adds a pop of color and freshness to the entire space.

The door opens up and leads you to the passageway connecting all the formal and informal spaces. The passageway has a Wavy wooden ceiling infused with lights has a tree of life done in metal as its focal point which starts to set one in the relaxing mood after a long day of work.
