The building has a compact shape which leads to a variety of functions that are projected one above the other. The strict requirements for acoustic questions leads to a heavy construction and mutual decoupling of several structures, allowing various components within the building having their own structure which are not supported by the lower building volumes.
The new building structure will be realized from the existing basements of the Spui parking and the parking under the former Ministry of Justice and Home Affairs, and is a mix of concrete and steel structures.
Underneath the building also runs the underground entrance to the parking of the city hall, which also must continue to operate during the construction.
