Pesona, modern office building in Japan and also there’s a farming ground inside!

Creating agricultural systems in a busy country in Japan is almost impossible. Considering limited space in Japan. But, however this limitation is not an obstacle to making urban agriculture. An extraordinary concept of urban agriculture emerged in Japan. Not only the exterior of the building is greened, inside the building there are also agricultural land which can actually produce fruit and vegetables.

In the midst of busy financial district office buildings in Tokyo, this building is called Pasona, a multi-national recruitment company. When a company is in need of a new office, they hire a famous architect Japan Yoshimi Kono to help renovate, building 9 floors and decorate with ‘fertility’ and green walls.

Not only limited to the exterior of the building, greening was also conducted in the building. There is an urban agriculture facility that occupies approximately 20% of all office space covers 200 types of fruits, vegetables and rice. Office workers in turn helps maintain and harvest crops. Most of the agricultural products will be presented at the office canteen.

Using hydroponic farming systems, crop share office space and employees. For example, tomato plants hanging over the conference table, which is used as a partition tree space for meetings, salad leaves that grow in the seminar room and bean sprouts that grow under the bench. The main lobby is also equipped with rice and broccoli fields. The plant is equipped with HEFL, fluorescent and LED lighting and automatic irrigation systems.

An advanced technology air humidity is able to control the climate, temperature and wind to balance human comfort during working hours and to optimize plant growth after business hours. The technology used to maximize results. All plants are maintained and harvested by employees assisted by agricultural experts.

Pasona urban farm system does not only show the beauty and visual aesthetics. Pasona is a superb concept how to create a comfortable working environment to improve productivity and mental health of employees who work in this place. Besides the existence of charm can be a means to establish social interactions that involve the wider community to showcase the benefits of urban agriculture and technology.
