Interior is designed in a strict manner, to give the feeling of a factory, using clean undisturbed surfaces such as white concrete. Bright details and lighting solutions let the spaces rest clean and filled with air. White and red are corporate colors of DKC.
In the conference rooms the tables are designed with metal pieces of manufacturer’s production to transfer its technical quality into the aesthetic realm.

NefaArchitects also had a chance to develop the facades of the complex, which gave the building and interiors a uniform feeling of transparency and lightness.
