The building’s form harmonises with the corner situation at Helmut-Zilk-Park near the Central Station, a prominent urban development site. The staggered structure adds extra significance to the building’s appearance and simultaneously optimises the incidence of light onto the neighbouring buildings and its own atrium. Its versatility of use is clearly visible: the emphatically public ground floor (with the PrimOrama dance studio) and the office storeys above it form a common socle; the residential floors above are interconnected through the proscenium, which from the outside is a clearly perceptible space; multi-functional spaces act as meeting places for the building’s community and visitors, forming an interactive zone between the inside and outside. The building and the life within provide a basis for reciprocal relationships. A roof landscape crowns the building, with different terraces for communal and private use.
