The meander shape of the building creates a diverse building volume that integrates naturallywith the urban blocks along the Havenlaan.To establish an attractive working environment a sustainable low–‐rise building of only Six layers is deliberately chosen, consisting of large floor areas on a human scale. A modest vertical accent of 60 meters makes the project recognizable in the skyline of Brussels.

The Herman Teirlinck building is, like the Royal Warehouse on the site of Tour & Taxis, characterized by a covered internal street. It runs through the entire length of the building and aligns with the one of the Royal Warehouse.

All common functions for employees, such as  the restaurant, reception rooms, auditoriums, information and exhibition space are  connected to this street. On the upper levels the office floors are situated around four internal, transparent and green ourtyards. This creates a clear and sustainable building with  lots of natural light.
