Although the lucid composition of the multi-story part and the assembly hall is remarkable from a distant view, the planning, allocating the low part along the street, provides an intimate streetscape with a human scale. The one-stop lobby where public services to the citizens are provided is a public space for the city, and is located at the center of the building, surrounded by offices, a restaurant and cafĂ©.
