Developed on the grounds of the Alte Hauptpost post office in Heidelberg, the complex was conceived as architectonically and functionally distinct part of Rohrbacher Strasse high street. The building has a landmark effect in urban-planning terms. Referencing the floor-to-ceiling heights and building volume of adjacent structures, it integrates itself into its surroundings but also stands out as monolithic unit of distinct character.
