The long, rectangular building mass offers ideal function and circulation. A colonnade, with considerable significance regarding urban planning, and the clear allocation of entrances leading to an internal "mall" are facing the customer park. The primary side towards Kasseler Landstraße receives a divisioned, transparent green house zone.
The internal "mall" is constructed from arched steel girders with trapezoid sheet metal respectively glazed roofing and widens in the middle entrance zone into a three-naved hall.
In order to present a uniform visual concept, a differentiated, super-ordinate advertising concept with two pylons visible from a distance have been realized.
