Transparency and communication were achieved with the fecoplan all-glass construction. Meeting rooms and individual offices zone the open, communicative office landscape. The fecoplan glass corridor walls are supplemented with fabric-covered, acoustically-effective absorbers. The think tanks with curved, coloured glass elements placed in the middle zones offer temporary retreat areas from the team area. At the same time, they form an attractive landmark in the office landscape. The combination of open team work areas with spaces for concentrated intellectual activities as well as meeting rooms and inspiration zones has created a sustainable agile office landscape in which work tasks of increasing complexity can be solved together.
