The bridge and the retaining walls, built in stone masonry with reinforced concrete core are part of the project.

The above ground part of the building is built entirely of wood. The large spans are achieved with laminated timber beams up to 13 meters long. The volume is marked by the 12 meter high chimney, build entirely in stone masonry with reinforced concrete core. The entire wooden structure is left exposed on the inside.
