The Building is situated in the business park Pettelaarpark. Its location facing the ring road A2, means it is being seen from various angles.

Although a single building was planned on the site, two separate owners joined forced to develop the site. The resulting massing reflects the wishes of the clients to create two independent building, while providing the unity the urban planners envisioned.

The dynamic geometry gives the building its airy and transparent silhouet. By distinguishing the lower and upper part of the building, the scale of the building has been brought in line with the surroundings. By moving the upper part of the building in opposite directions, the courtyard between the buildings has been shortened and the visibility of both buildings has been enhanced. The parking has been hidden from sight by an elevated landscape.

Alternating spandrels of white glass and bronze coloured metal emphasise the layered massing. The pattern on the glass spandrels and the texture on the metal panels create a refined image that becomes more interesting as one moves closer.

The office floors have been laid out to maximise flexibility with compact cores and free structural spans. At ground level where the buildings connect lobbies, meetings rooms and a restaurant have been arranged around a central patio. One of the users has positioned its restaurant on the third floor making use of the south-facing roof terrace, overlooking the green meadows at the other side of the motorway.
