Inside, engines intended for German submarines are now used as backup generators. But it’s the architecture and design that really catch the eye. With a nod to 1970s science fiction films, the building features lush greenery adorning the walls of its cavernous digital confines. But you won’t find any James Bond villains here, just the 15-person technical staff that run the servers.
