A campus creating a difference.

LiS/Q consists of two atrium buildings and one additional building—connected by a green axis. A parking garage is situated beneath the primary buildings. The structures are arranged so that they create wide-open courtyards. Flooded with light, they are permeated with a relaxing atmosphere and serve as green oases, places of refuge, or even spaces for working outdoors.
