dormakaba’s solutions for high-tech, security and comfort

At Millennium, the working environment of the future is based on three pillars: high-tech, security and luxury. Harmoniously combined and perfectly coordinated, these three pillars create an ideal setting for carefree work and productivity.

Security and state-of-the-art technologies require access solutions to fulfil fundamental prerequisites, thereby creating a comfortable and seamless structural experience.

Flexible access system

Two features of the exos access management system play a crucial role in this. The system can be continuously developed and adapted to new requirements. An important prerequisite at Millennium, which will continue to rely on innovative, state-of-the-art technologies in the future.

Networkable access system

It must also be possible to connect this to the building’s various systems. A smart building is characterised by the fact that individual systems communicate with each other to improve efficiency and sustainability.

A smart building for smart working

Occupants benefit from automated features that ensure their comfort, such as the insulated glass facade that adapts to sunlight, thereby creating an anti-glare workspace. Or the contactless access and transition points within the building.

However, interfaces between building systems are also essential for situations where automation is not used. For example, a meeting room can be booked via the building app and opened at the required time using a digital key in the app.

When luxury is the order of the day, there’s a great deal of emphasis on design and materials.

No compromises between form and function

When thinking of sliding doorsdoor closers and access readers, design certainly isn’t the first thing to spring to mind. At Millennium, however, this was just as important. A timeless product design and large selection of materials and colours were prerequisites for ensuring that these items match the interior architecture and contribute to the understated luxury.

Many discerning artisans were involved in the interior design, keeping a professional eye on the details. Standards are high in this league and shades of colour represent significant details. Working with specialists enabled products such as the TS 98 XEA door closer to be custom-made.

While most products do their job discreetly and reliably, others really stand out at Millennium. For example, the large automatic sliding door with chrome profiles in the foyer.

This is one of the many highlights at Millennium, which welcomes visitors to a new kind of working environment.
