Holistic sustainability: The building is aiming for DGNB Gold and incorporates advanced data solutions for optimizing building operations and energy consumption - as well as local rainwater management and a large focus on social sustainability.

Placemaking: The green square in front of the building contributes to the local area offering a new public meeting place. Higher up in the building, landscaped roof terraces offer more intimate outdoor spaces for the tenants.

Community building: The architecture and its build-in flexibility supports INCUBA Next as a creative incubator. It encourage exchange and synergy between the tenants internally and between the companies and the profession in general.

Human scale: The large volume is broken down in several parts, configured to ensure a human-scale environment surrounding the building. The high-rise is designed to appear approachable and less dominant.
