The building is located on the east side of Zagreb, on a site among typical suburban sprawl. The business complex is comprised of two volumes, one low and spreading horizontally, the other more narrow, rising like a small tower. The lower volume acts as massive storage on the ground with a parking on the roof. Office spaces for rent occupy most levels of the business tower, while the ground floor is filled with shops and restaurants.  A central core binds the levels, comprising lifts, staircases and neccessary service areas. Simple post-beam construction is enveloped in a modernist inspired facade with long glass strokes.
