The intent of the design is to transform the monotony of waiting into a leisurely experience. Therefore, other than providing the necessary functional requirements, the spatial configuration caters for a car display area, lounges, internet zones, and a coffee shop.

Private offices, meeting rooms and a library are located on the mezzanine level, overlooking the car display space below. Although the 100 m-long and 30 m-wide display and reception space emphasize horizontality, they are interrupted by a double volume at the level of the car display.

The arrangement of the various functional spaces, kiosks, enhances the variety of spatial experience. Moreover, the indoor environment benefits from improved daylighting, due to this interrupted configuration of the spaces.
