The building comprises seven floors, which accommodate offices and laboratories, formal and informal meeting rooms, and an underground car park. Sharing the ground floor with the reception area is a spacious auditorium. A wide wooden staircase connects this floor with the first, the vast expanse of the staircase allowing it to do double duty as a location for lectures and speeches. Office space is situated on the upper floors, with rooms arranged to hug the perimeter of the building. The rooms are adaptable, allowing them to serve as laboratories (with 4-metre-high ceilings) or be modified with little effort for other purposes. Offices on each floor cohere around social spaces overlooking the atrium.
