๐ŸŸฉ GreenBricks Building of the Week ๐ŸŸฉ Technique

The art of green

Opened in summer 2021, Technique is the pinnacle of future-facing, thoughtful, human-centric office design. It has been built with a radical responsibility to the local environment and respect for people who work there. The building represents the potential for sustainability to be an art โ€“ rather than mere duty.
