The urban planning scheme and landscape design of Papendorp Business Park incorporate a high-density urban core with offices and business accommodation surrounded by other offices and companies in a green setting. High demands have been placed on the design of the building and the planning of the public space. The new Daimler Chrysler buildings have a total surface area of 24,000 m², with offices, restaurant and business accommodation. An underground parking area is situated beneath the volumes and integrated in the sloping green landscape.
The two towers are the highest buildings in the business park. The transparent main entrance is situated between the two towers and gives access to both buildings and the underground car parking. The complete buildings layout is arranged in a clear way to ensure floor plans that are highly functional and flexible. The special glass facades give the buildings continuously changing layered effects of transparency and reflection of the surroundings.
