The original complex was built in the 1960s and consisted of four office towers surrounded by parking spaces and temporary buildings. Of the complex designed by architect Zanstra, the two highest towers were never realized. DP6 has designed two new towers at these locations. The new sixty-meter-high office towers have a façade made entirely of glass. For this, fixed slats hang from the sunlight, but offer an unobstructed view of the Veluwe. It gives the buildings relief and a varied pattern. In contrast to the old design, the cell offices have been transformed into an open and flexible office building.

Neutelings Riedijk architecten designed an underground plinth building that connects all functions. The building part is covered by a pond where light happers protrude in some places. These elements have dragons and gargoyles designed by Rob Birza and are covered with stainless steel plates. There is an underground parking garage in this part of the building.
