The massive structure seems like an iceberg floating through the streets.

It responds to traditional local architecture with vertical proportions and steep pitches as well as the nearby industrial influence with its shear scale.

The facade is made of a translucent glass creating an obvious contrast to the immediate surroundings to create a reference point in the area and a symbol of the city’s transitional nature.
