The 55m high mixed-use building includes 27,000m2 of offices and 4,000m2 of retail on the ground floor. The round tower emerges from within the round-cornered four-storey plinth.

MVRDV’s design proportions aim to relate to the mansions of the industrialists, surrounding a new public court. It provides more density and urbanity.

The glazed-brick façade’s colour scheme blends from red to metallic grey.

The building has a distinct envelope given the strict instructions for a, respecting the outline of the plot and at the same time, allowing for a tower height of up to 55 metres. The plinth is a band of retail spaces on the ground floor with offices above and a depth that allows for maximum daylight into all floors.
