Transparency, open-mindedness and collaboration shape our changing work culture - and the material science industry is no different. No wonder Henkel is dedicating an entire 47,000 square meter new building to exploring this. The Global Center for Adhesive Technologies at the Düsseldorf factory site will become the new home for research, product development and marketing. Starting now, more than 500 experts will work here, hand in hand with partners and customers from all over the world. Their goal? To jointly develop powerful innovations for the future.
To house it all, the architects at RKW+ have built a sophisticated laboratory building. In the "Heavy Labs", in the basement, entire production lines can be set up for presentation and documentation purposes. All the laboratories, test facilities and offices are surrounded completely by glass, allowing maximum visibility. On a total of seven floors, these facilities are clustered around a large atrium with an open staircase. This serves as the heart of the new building, embodying the collaborative working spirit.
