The barrier-free glazed entrance provides an initial view into the bright, modern space, which features accents of colour in the characteristic shade of red which is part of Mannheim’s corporate design. Spatial zoning allows each area to be recognised quickly. Upon entry, employees use their chip card to pass through access control. Visitors turn right to go to the constantly-manned reception desk or left to the information and waiting zones, which have interactive touch panels and a comfortable lounge area. High-resolution screens provide a detailed guidance system throughout the area as well as information about the city.
