The building is shaped like an ‘H’, with a hall running through both legs of the letter’s shape, containing offices on one side and laboratories on the other. Construction works, structures, thermal and electrical building services, and laboratory interior have all been integrally accounted for in the design, in such a way that all disciplines are attuned to each other. Because of this, the building is as universal as possible, even though it hosts a number of highly specific sections. The flexible office space design features a central multifunctional hall for presentations etc., serving also as a meeting spot for the building’s users. In total, the amount of realised area adds up to 32.000m2 GFA..
