On all levels, offices, labs and amenity spaces are linked. The staff benefit not only from short ways in the building, but also from a pleasant atmosphere.

The light-flooded atrium in the central part of the construction was planned and executed by MERO. The single-layer bolted, approx. 500 sqm roof structure is designed without visible welding seams.

The safety glass panels are positioned on a drainage system of EPDM, which was installed directly onto the steel construction. Furthermore, the glazing panels have a special edge compound, which complies with the special building physics requirements (amongst others avoidance of condensation).
