"At both ends of the workspace, we have created a pyramid made of tables of different sizes, on which employees can sit at different heights," explained the architects. "Users can enjoy a bird's eye view of the 82 metres of space." As a "watchtower", this raised platform is an ideal place for breaks, as well as extemporary meetings, during which people are allowed to explore the surroundings from new points of view.
