At the new U.S. headquarters for growing global biotech Genmab, the lab is the center of its work culture. The Denmark-based company specializes in the creation and development of differentiated antibody therapeutics for the treatment of cancer. Gensler worked closely with Genmab on the adaptive reuse of the existing facility to transform it into one that supports labs and research and development activities. The labs are strategically adjacent to the Hygge (a nod to its Danish roots), an informal gathering space defined by coziness and conviviality. Filled with natural light from the window wall, the labs put science on display to create a shared sense of purpose for employees. An interconnecting stair links colleagues between different floors of the workplace with cozy nooks and booths for focusing and collaborating.
