The project is performed as mix between wood-hybrid structure and reinforced concrete frame construction with 5 upper floors and 2 basement floors. The ceilings in the upper floors are planned as wood-concrete composite prefabricated parts (reinforced concrete plates bolted with wooden trusses) as well as supports in solid wood. The wooden structures are frame constructions which are attached to the staircase. The staircase itself is designed in reinforced concrete.

The focus of the project is the creation of flexible and modern room versions that can be simply adjusted to different working situations like for example hybrid working. On the ground floor there is a rest area and a fitness room for employees as well as a restaurant. The attic is planned as meeting area for bigger meetings and events. In the subterranean garage there will be a sufficient supply with parking spaces for electric cars as well as for bicycles for safe parking.
