Vertical movement inside the structure occurs on three pairs of escalators located in the atrium and leading to all the levels of the structure. Further, the vertical movement is ensured by two freight elevators and a glass panoramic elevator. A dominant feature of the whole building is the glass curtain wall facade, situated on the eastern side and partly also on the southern and the northern side of the building. The remaining peripheral walls of the structure are mantled by an air-entraining facade with alucobond plate. The structure is linked with the adjacent Parkdeck by an entrance bridge, forming a self-contained entertainment centre with a car park.
