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.
