The distinctive appearance of the Hybrid Tower establishes it as a new landmark in the western half of Graz. The architecture of the building lends it a moderate dominance on the construction site, while the Graz Gürtelturm receives a complementary vis à vis. The tower, which has different functional areas, has been designed as a homogenized hybrid, allowing it to make a strong impact at this location. The majority of the structure appears to float above the ground floor, and the upper levels have been structured to look like bands that form a nearly-uniform façade, behind which the offices, hotel rooms and residential areas are housed. Large-volume openings lend the tower an unmistakable contour. The tower stands on an urban quadrangle across which the visitor is led through various entrances into the foyer: a multi-story, light-flooded room that is thermally sealed by a glass roof. From this room, it is possible to access all areas of the building. The layout is horizontal: most of the public, functional areas are located on the ground floor, such as the fitness studio, wellness centre, shops, restaurants and the reception area. The offices are located on the 1st and 2nd floors, and the offices for external parties are found on the 3rd through 5th floors. The hotel rooms are found on the 6th floor and the apartments, on the 7th to 8th floors. Above the penthouses, which are located on the 10th floor, the Skybar and the seminar areas have been planned. In the four basement levels, the required parking spaces – including the service programme – have been accommodated.
