Destined to accommodate the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines and Healthcare, the buildings were designed to reflect both the functionality and prestige of this institution administered by the Council of Europe. Housed beneath a large curved roof, the laboratories form a separate building that reflects their function while the offices form two asymmetrical wings. Here the architecture succeeds in expressing the institution's role and authority. The laboratory section is designed to express its function while the administrative units emphasise the comfort, attractiveness, and quality of life in relation to the natural environment.
Each part of this complex expresses its function, the whole expressing both the image and the function of the institution.
