The eight-storey administration building occupies a prominent corner in the heart of Hamburg city centre. The Kunsthalle is opposite, and the main railway station and Alster lake are within walking distance.
The building volume is structured by the use of different types of facades and fits into the small-scale building structure of the city centre. An arcade on the ground floor also gives the building a horizontal structure. The corner of the building is designed as a double façade.
The windows are made of varnished wood and give the building a special colourfulness. For heat and sound insulation there is a glass facade with coloured aluminium profiles in front of it. On both sides there is a building structure made of solid natural stone. Here the windows are designed as box-type windows for sound insulation reasons. The glass structure towers above the natural stone facades by one storey.
