The deck is a parking facility with six levels above ground and one underground. All levels are sloped and there are good opportunities for charging electric and hybrid vehicles. In the design, great consideration has been given to security, which is reflected in lighting and glazed surfaces in the elevators, among other things. Entrances and stairwells are positioned for traffic safety and comfort.

The facades of the building are made of simple and robust materials that stand the test of time. The wood of the façade will slowly gray and merge with the cast-in-place concrete of the building. The facades of the parking lot are clad with rhombic trusses that support glulam and expanded metal, allowing the building to change character between day and night.

Towards the neighboring property, the facade consists of concrete with a matrix cast pattern. The structure of the facade is inspired by the structure of the sailcloth and connects to the site's contact with the water and the marina.

The ground floor is planned to house functions other than parking, such as the existing grocery store, which contributes to a vibrant urban environment.
