The principal, functions of the building come into being around the different in size green spaces of the park with conserved trees. All vertical facades of the building are an overflow of trees in a thick forest with many ramification crowns which become denser with height and let through the natural light according to the function need of the space and level. The greatest amount of light penetrates in the public spaces on the ground level – 115,50 which are open to the park. The visitors access is entirely conformable to the existing lanes in the park.
