The building typologically consists of two interlocking buildings surrounding an inner courtyard that are staggered according to height.
While the upper element shifts towards the park, the lower element shifts into the hillside terrain. The clear, cubic expression refers to the main building as well as the subtle bands in the facade.
The covered entrance is located at the intersection of the two buildings in
the deepest part of the building volume.
