The construction area is limited by the Cemal Sahir street and Raşit Rıza street, which have a 9 meter difference in height. The building is composed of two main volumes: the ground-floor volume with 5.50m height and an upper volume of 18.50m in accordance with the municipal urban regulations. At the heart of the project there is an open-air court yard dominated by trees and a variety of other natural elements that offer a unique sense of tranquility and reclusion from the bustling urban environment of this area of the city.

The main pedestrian access to the building is from the Oğuz street and the entrance to the car car-park and logistics from the Raşit Rıza Street.

The modular façade design gives the advantage of flexible pattern which is made of traditional, enduring materials. The grid of 160cm is divided into 110cm and 50cm sub-modules. The distinctive façade pattern of the RMO is created by alternating the sub-modules and the combination of three materials: glass, wood and white panels. Moreover, a stainless steel mesh is used as vertical sun-shading elements. Finally a series of Illuminated beams are used to highlight the floors and to make the building more dynamic horizontally also at night.
