Inside, large wooden beamsare stacked to form a multifunctional structure which forms a small mezzanine workspace with two decks. This central element references the structure’s original purpose and can be used as a library, seating area, and a staircase. The meeting area, offering views of the surroundings through floor-to-ceiling glazing, is located just underneath the mezzanine.
