The multi-storey car park as part of the central building
is a six-storey bridge construction in linear structure over
a length of 570 m, which in the final stage will be bridging

The bridge piles, evenly spaced at 65-metre intervals,
specify the building structure. Inside the piles, staircases
and lifts have been installed, which also provide access
to the mall, which runs parallel at Level +2, as well as to
the central check-in terminal.
Over a length of 60 metres and with an overall height of 16.80 m, four frame girders have been placed
between the bridge piles, which have been hitched up to
the six parking decks. Access to the multi-storey car park
is provided by three double-spiral units with separate way-in and way-out lines.

The main design features of the building are the bridge piles made of translucent concrete, the yellow colouring of piles and spiral units with its signalling effect, which can be seen from a great distance, as well as the silver-coloured roof skin which covers the whole central building like an artistic brace, giving the multi-storey car park and the mall a uniform outline.
