    NYC-based firm Kono Designs renovated Pasona’s nine-story, 215,000 SF office with a double-skin green facade, offices, auditorium, cafeterias, rooftop garden, and urban farming facilities integrated with the building. The green space comprises 43,000 SF with 200 species, including fruits, vegetables, and rice. (The main lobby has a rice paddy—and a broccoli field!) “It is the largest and most direct farm-to-table of its kind ever realized inside an office building in Japan,” says Kono.
