The building composes of the two four-story office wings, connected with each other by the glazed lift lobby. The lobby with the centrally located glazed meeting rooms opens itself on each floor to the surrounding green park.
The X-shaped building optimizes the use of the land and gives flexibility in case of the future rental of the office space. A single-story underground car park for 100 cars has been designed underneath.
Each floor is equipped with the conference rooms and recreational facilities for employees. The layout of the building has been designed to fulfill specific work and security requirement of the client. Repeatable rhythm of the external elevations recollects the style of the nineteenth-century factory buildings that were common in Łódź.
Characteristic colorful vertical blinds on the north and south facing facades refer to the Ericpol logotype. Building's west courtyard opens up directly to the old park where informal meeting places surrounded by the green landscape will be placed.
