655 Central has been designed to disrupt the daily routine of the building’s inhabitants by creating moments at the plaza level that trigger the senses.

This goal was achieved by opening the interior up to the exterior, allowing for the aroma of flowers and sound of water and the rustling landscape to permeate the space. The opening promoted a flood of light to stream in and highlight the various textures with which guests are encouraged to interact.  

In an attempt to break up the monotony of a day-to-day routine, the new space at 655 Central ameliorates the end users daily experience by welcoming them with a stimulating first impression and evoking an emotional response throughout out the day.
