The company EXBIO Praha operates in the field of biotechnology, a field with high technological demands (for instrumentation and qualified personnel) and high added value. The company's production program is the development, production and sale of monoclonal antibodies for scientific purposes. Typical customers are researchers at universities, academic or private research institutes, using these products for their science, research or development. Other customers are companies using EXBIO products as basic raw materials for their own products.
There are currently 4 buildings in the complex:
EXBIO II - Research and Technology centre
EXBIO III - Production centre
EXBIO IV - Production and logistics centre
EXBIO V - Management and business centre
Landscape concept lies in the transition of the urban environment to the countryside. The central space of the complex is a paved area with a water feature in front of the EXBIO V building. There are a number of perennial beds around this space. The trees used for planting here will be a combination of domestic and introduced species.

The central "urban" space will be followed by an area combining urban greenery and greenery of the open landscape. Domestic woody plants is supplemented with introduced species only in small quantities. The area of transition to the countryside is located in the southern part of the complex. There are chosen domestic fruit trees, which were chosen so that their fruits are suitable primarily for direct consumption.
There is a height limit of 8 m in the area, which caused the need for complex technical solutions, especially in the EXBIO IV building.
