A large rectangular two-storey box houses a print shop, interview rooms and offices. The offices and print production area have their own entrances on two diametrically opposite corners. Inside, an atrium separates the print shop from the offices upstairs and from the interview rooms, canteen and directors’ suite on the ground floor. The building’s most striking feature is its facade, a skin of printed panes of glass with the insulation layer visible behind, atop a concrete block base. The glass skin enfolds both print shop and offices and is printed with a text by K. Schippers in lettering by Karel Martens.
