The building includee room for 150 office workers and allow the flexible use of the offices (cubicle offices, open-plan office). In addition to the offices uses, including the necessary side-functions such as copier and storage rooms, there should also be a moderate degree of break and day rooms as well as rooms for creative exchange. In addition to the pure office use of the building there is be a training center that can be used for internal training and presentations and also be rented to third parties.

To ensure barrier free use, the building has a barrier-free entrance, an elevator with capacity for a stretcher and a handicapped accessible restroom in the first floor.

The building owner has decided to demonstrate the high level of sustainability throughout the building with DGNB and LEED certification. The demands and evaluation standards of both certifications will be considered in an ongoing basis in the decision process during the planning.
