The building takes the form of an elevated beam of accommodation which rises from eight storeys at its southern end addressing the Liffey Quays to seventeen storeys where it addresses Point Square. It is set back on its river frontage in deference to the fine three storey protected front building and flank of the original Point Depot. It therefore simultaneously responds to the context of the river front while also creating an urban marker for the new public space of Point Square.
This form is further manipulated to recognise the complexity of the square in use, by being raised seven meters above the ground thus allowing the public realm to flow freely beneath.
