The whole complex is clearly linked to its position in the urban context of the city and the Alster, an important historical path from the Jungfernstieg, to the harbour. The passage also forms the link between the office complex and the residential buildings along the Alster. The pedestrian fluxes have been guided along the city across generous arcades, always keeping a close contact to the water. The public areas between the building elements have been alternatively developed as green landscape areas. The office building in the northern part is articulated with a closed volume at the building's head and gets framed by equivalent office buildings in the east and the west. The office units are oriented to the side of the harbour and the city so that it is possible for all of them to be exposed with natural light and supplied with fresh air (text from architect's website).
