Spatial order for a vibrant research community is achieved by dividing the spaces around three nuclei in a complex technical program of laboratory spaces. The first nucleus is contemplative in nature, and houses an exhibit space on the company's achievements at its center. This space is envisaged as the "jewel in the crown" and is set within a reflecting pond. The second nucleus is a technical atrium which forms a gathering space for scientists as they emerge from the laboratories. The third nucleus is a social space surrounded by the cafeteria and recreation spaces with the guest house above. All three nuclei are linked a linear spatial sequence, and each nucleus independently achieves transparency to landscape.
