I remember when this first opened reading a story that staff working for Siemens there were not allowed to post personal photographs and other signs of life in case they would spoil the white minimalist interiors. There seems something creepily austere about the place. I wouldn't be surprised if it housed mad Swiss doctors injecting monkey gland serums or engineers designing laser-guided drones.
