The visitior enters the wood-clad building with its strong form from Marienplatz to a view through the house that expands into fractured planes. This main feature - a light refracting wall - dominates the atrium space and rises to a glass ceiling. It connects the exterior public realm of Marienplatz with all the functional spaces creating a vibrant public hub - a flowing communicative thoroughfare for chance and planned encounterss.
