These two urban facts, led to the decision of basing the building which is used for a car agency headquarters in this location.
The building is constructed of two parking basements, large showroom at the ground floor and two stories of company offices and a wide open roof with a panoramic view which is used for a trendy restaurant and bar.
Façade materials are composed from an exposed concrete and glass wall at the ground floor while at the upper surface materials are curtain wall based on steel construction.
The materiality of the façade lends majesty to the building through a unitary volumetric composition, which manifests itself on both the outside and the inside. The building envelope represents the character of the building.
