The redundant former heat exchanger is situated in the dominant part of the residential district, Nad Jazerom.

The transformation of the function is reflected in its concept by means of a clean-shaped joist acting as a dynamic boulder.

The top consists of some kind of atrium with four big trees creating an isolated space from the world around. The rugged facade accentuates the public area.
