With plenty of natural light, comfortable couches and many opportunities to touch base with your colleagues, our space is designed to optimize creativity, collaboration and calm.
We are also surrounded by beautiful nature (we’re quite close to a duck pond, the harbor and a bubbling stream) for inspiration, and we aim to reflect this in our work.
