The building site is prominently located on Picassoplatz. This is a corner lot with, for the most part, six-story building in perimeter block development. Distinctive buildings, among them the art museum and the Baloise Insurance Company's free-standing headquarters, are its next-door neighbours.
The proportioning of the building and the arrangement of each single part is based on a modular system.The ground floor contains conference rooms and offices as well as access to the underground parking garage. The upper floors are reached via a prominent staircase. Location of and accessibility to service spaces are organized around a type of core, allowing entry from both sides. Single-space offices as well as large open ones are thus possible. The high spaces of the 'attic story' are used for conferences, employee's break, and offices. The building's facade is rather elegant in dark gray steel.
