Mind Map of Earthshare and Lulan Artisans' individual as well as shared values.
Both Earthshare and Lulan Artisans are companies that act as intermediaries between diverse communities. Their shared office space reflects the openness and trust that is necessary to forge these new relationships. By weaving together the companies and the space they share, a sustainable community is formed. Using the language of weaving, planes intersect both horizontally and vertically and converge to create dynamic shared spaces or separate to allow for privacy. Rich materialities foster a warm environment for both work and community building.
