Public spaces will be located at ground level, with laboratories, offices and support facilities above. The floor plans are designed to allow maximum flexibility and to promote connections between the 28 different laboratories – the result is a sequence of delicately layered spaces, which gradually unfold as one travels through the building.

Each floor will house labs from each of the five different research areas and will share social spaces, encouraging maximum interaction between disciplines.
