The concept for the high-rise building was to create a building that is flexible to use and which, most important of all, takes account of the festival square's human scale. The square's terrain and surfacing flow in under the building's ground floor as an inviting carpet which merges life in the festival square with the building's indoor settings.
The high-rise building's architecture with three vertically displaced building elements signals the building's three functions: the hotel at the top, the offices in the middle and a conference centre on the ground floor. Between each of the building's three elements there are recessed "breathing spaces" with green outdoor terraces, from where there are views of the town and the landscape – as green spaces for the building's users.
