Well-being at TerraWATT
Not-so-secret insight: prolonged sitting is bad for you. Our free advice: get up. Walking promotes blood flow, increases oxygen intake and elevates energy levels. This leads to improved concentration, alertness, creativity and focus, which in turn can boost productivity. At TerraWATT, natural daylight, smart ventilation systems and an array of open spaces invite you to take a walk, breathe better, think clearer – and improve your productivity during your workday. Everything to boost your brain chemistry – and your business.
The spacious transmission shaft, large offices and shared areas give you plenty of (wiggle) room. Enjoy fresh air and catch some rays on the first floor terrace, in front of the coffee bar or at the second-floor rooftop terrace overlooking the skyline of Ghent.
The 3.6-meter-high generous-sized windows play a crucial role in the building’s greatest asset: natural light. Mostly constructed with steel joinery and restored to preserve the historical architecture, they ensure that daylight can once again flood the interior spaces. Several sky-wells allow light to enter the building. To guarantee modern comfort quality, a complete glass rear wall with sun protection is installed.
Air & acoustics
The smart system D or balanced ventilation provides an energy-efficient continuous supply of fresh air. Acoustically-raised access floors with carpet tiles reduce sound transmission between rooms.
The ventilation system is designed to provide cooling or heating, maintaining a comfortable temperature of 21°C. Temperature control is available within individual offices and special considerations are made for spaces with different orientations.
TerraWATT is home to an innovative, digital, green and creative ecosystem. The atmosphere is corporate yet vibrant, with the sound of innovative ideas buzzing and the constant hum of advanced technology resounding. Encounters happen at networking events, afterwork drinks or happy hours – unlocking the power of collaboration. Cross-pollination is just around every (coffee) corner. This community of forward-thinkers is always one step ahead of change. And so can you. Do you feel the FOMO?
