Efficiency is at the basis of the new office building for technology company John Crane (part of Smiths Group plc) located in Thailand. Public related areas are situated towards the glass front facade, which makes the building look open. Office and working spaces have windows at two side. The volume of the staircase (on the leftside) is used to shape and characterize the building. A curtain-wall glass system is used for the materialisation of the facade.
