The laboratory building, designed for the State Serum Institute, has the greatest possible flexibility and the ability to adapt to future laboratory requirements. Furthermore, the new building appears in architectural harmony with the old barracks complex.

The design of the individual laboratories are as open and flexible as possible, with the other necessary facilities incorporated: meeting rooms, cold rooms, locks and more. Building 211 consists of a series of interconnected specialist laboratories.
The architecture underline the characteristics of the former barrack complex. We have chosen distinctive materials such as yellow bricks to create a harmony with the existing architecture.
The building complete the park space between two existing buildings from the 1880s, with a large pergola-like façade with tall brick pillars. The laboratory building is connected to the existing buildings with a light glass link. The historic building facades are thus unbroken and make a transition between the old and new buildings.
