The Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR) is the innovative engine for Novartis, a multinational pharmaceutical company. The Wintergarden café at the NIBR headquarters is designed to energize the team and act as a gathering space to promote informal social interaction. The dynamic space complements an existing DNA-themed ground floor lobby by integrating scientific disciplines – including custom, three-dimensional components curving along two different axes.
