A Facility of Great Proportion
A significant intention of the project’s design was to raise APL’s brand profile and offer physical transparency to their business. APL contains three separate office blocks with an overall floor area of 4,500m². They house commercial kitchens, observation decks, meeting rooms, conference rooms, and many bright, open-plan office spaces.
“Amongst other objectives, APL stated the factory should provide a second home to staff, be inspirational, set standards for corporations to follow and of course produce the best window systems in the country.”
