The tower, which stands at a height of 125 meters (410 feet), is the highest residential building in Stockholm’s city center, and uses a modular system of precast exposed concrete elements.

In a country with scarce daylight for half of the year, extra square meters of windows and multiple orientations for each apartment were included in the design, giving the occupants the maximum amount of daylight possible.

The alternating bay windows and recessed terraces in the design of the tower are a tribute to Brutalist architecture.

The facade of the tower is made from a colored concrete ribbed surface, brushed with an exposed multi-colored aggregate pebble mix.
