The new building has replaced an antiquated one on the company's premises. The nine-storey-high research headquarters adhere to the typical structure of open galleries, used as emergency escape routes and service zones. The façade in back is completely flat, smooth and glazed throughout. Offices and laboratories as well as larger public areas, including a five-storey library, an auditorium and a café are housed behind this façade of structural glazing. The different uses are visible from the outside through differences in depth and lighting, but also through the distinctive nature of the shades. The shades play an important role in the design of the building, lending its otherwise crystalline appearance a softness of contour.
