The building with a size of approximately 175 x 50 m comprises seven wings which are lined up diagonally and founded on a multi-storey car park. The entire structure of eleven stories is covered by a glass envelope so that large atriums are created between the wings. Unlike the large vertical front façade at the Konrad Adenauer Boulevard the roof structure is continuously curved at the north-west side towards the Val des Bons Malades.
