The colour effect of the glazed façade units changes, depending upon where the observer is standing.

The building’s architectural design is based on a glass façade developed by Olafur Eliasson and Henning Larsen Architects that envelopes the basic framework like a shimmering skin, conveying the impression of lightness and movement. The south-facing façade, looking over the city, consists exclusively of 956 glazed modules, whose unusual crystal-like appearance creates a unique spatial dimension.

The GROHE Eurosmart and infra-red electronically controlled Europlus E faucets with touch-free operation come into their own in the heavily-visited bathrooms. High quality GROHE products that excel because of low operating costs and the economical use of water and energy.
