In particular the ground floor space is intended to enable a lively and diverse mix of uses. Whether it’s a restaurant, gym, conference room, carpenter’s workshop, studio or small business – here nearly everything can be realised.

This has become in particular popular among start-ups, self-employed and creative people. Fab labs are used to provide individuals or small businesses access to modern, digital manufacturing processes.
