The concept is based on the idea of forming a building of rigid form, with underlined horizontality and of dark color streak to dominate the light surroundings. It is a building with steel construction frame. Facade is designed by superposing two planes of different materialization – rustic porcelain stoneware large format tiles on the building base and sparkling black Alpolic on Ground Level. Semi-structural dark glazed facade with horizontal bullnose profiles is the connecting element. Main entrance is enlightened by sloped skylight, that with structural elements forms a play of light and shadow. All cantilevered canopies are accented in light tone of metallic green Alpolic. In order to connect with a future row of planed commercial building technical area is located on level 1, in a smaler portion of building footprint, connected with a rooftop terrace. Functionaly the interior space of ground floor is divided in two functional wholes that can be connected in to one. Interior office space is of longitudinal rectangular geometry.
