The building’s volume is divided into two main elements where two volumes have distinct characters, and are also separated in function. First there is a two story high base volume of concrete with a roof cover of river stone containing the public areas such as foyer, restaurant, and a conference center.

Above the base it is facilitated for 410 hotel rooms, a lamella volume with a tilted roof that extends from its highest northern point of 7 stories to its lowers point of 5 stories towards south. The lamella volume is designed with reflective metal facades of natural anodized aluminum. The façade design has its inspiration from Stavanger’s role as a former center for the fishing and canning industries.
