The floors are designed to be pulled back on the main street side to form a shopping street on each floor. With these retractions, the building was designed as a building where the floor areas were reduced upwards, like an artificial hill. The building is designed on all floors where pedestrians can walk in front of the shops. Each floor has a walking path in front like a ground floor. These terrace roads on the facade are connected to each other by stairs. The building facade has been turned into a public facade that can be walked almost like a city area.
