The four high-rise buildings, up to 233 m high, including two office towers and two residential towers, were designed by UNStudio with Ben van Berkel. Their façades are characterised by building-high frame elements vertically and slightly diagonally. Stepped façade arrangements create visually inclined areas, the so-called kink façades. With increasing height, the distance between the towers is thus increased, allowing more daylight to enter the rooms and creating unique visual relationships. Heritage-listed existing façades are integrated into the podium, which is up to six storeys high. Among other things, a food hall is located there. A publicly accessible roof garden is planned for the podium roof.
Design and engineering, manufacturing, and installation of 40,000 sqm (430,500 sqm) of unitized façade with vertical and slightly diagonal frame elements for the towers T2 and T3 - for a total of approx. 8,000 units - plus a stick-system façade located between towers and podium and the 17,000 sqm (183,000 sq ft) podium special façade - a mix from steel and aluminum - adapted with fibre-reinforced concrete panels up to a planted green façade.
