The new Nord LB building is in the centre of a 14,000m² plot.  Made out of glass, steel and concrete the tower gives the desired transparency and lightness.

The glass office complex houses 1,500 employees at the Aegidientorplatz - and is a new milestone for Hannover.

The employees work in a creative atmosphere conducive to communication: with homogeneous glass offices with furniture, roof terraces for meetings and inviting cafeterias. There is view of a coloured roof on the one side a a view of the town on the other. The transparent architecture of his administrative building is visible and perceptible at any time. 

It was possible to optimise the acoustics in cafeteria with MICROSORBER® films installed in double layer. MICROSORBER® offers solutions combining simplicity and efficiency for all areas with high communication and relaxation requirements.  MICROSORBER® films optimise and accentuate the transparent structures.
