For the institutes it is of vital importance to be recognizable individually within the building. An atrium and transparency created by large glass surfaces allows the institutes to distinguish themselves. There are collaborative workspace in all shapes and sizes. From informal meeting rooms with comfortable seating to silent workspaces where you can work individually.

A combination of an innovative, high quality, sustainable and formal appearance adds to the hospitality for alumni and entrepreneurs and the development of sustainable relationships with the industry.
