The building contains offices and various service facilities used by a number of the port's staff groups. The different working hours and needs of the staff are accommodated via an interior design with several units that can function independently of each other. At the same time, the common facilities also provide opportunities for social interaction.

The building's form, with its protrusions and passages, provides shelter from the harsh weather conditions on the outer quays, and provides shading of the large glass panels. The materials used are cast in-situ concrete and dark brick: as raw as the harbour itself, and at the same time a response to the challenges of the location.
