Pasona HQ is an Urban Farm That Grows Food For Its Employees in Tokyo Pasona HQ-Kono Designs – Inhabitat – Sustainable Design Innovation, Eco Architecture, Green Building

Located in downtown Tokyo, Pasona HQ is a nine-story building for the Japanese recruitment company. Rather than build a brand-new building, the company took over a 50-year-old structure and renovated it into the urban farm and eco office you see now. Pasona elected to dedicate considerable space inside the building to hydroponic and soil-based farming, which is interspersed throughout the entire building — even in conference rooms and private offices. The exterior was drastically renovated with a living facade, which grows with seasonal flowers and orange trees in 3′ deep balconies. The benefits of such a system should be obvious — shading to reduce energy use and enhanced air quality to improve the health of the employees. Other renovations inside the building sought to improve the energy efficiency and comfort of the employees, including new lighting and an enhanced climate control system.
