The interior space mayor move is a central atrium that connects physically and visually all 3 levels, making the interior a bright and cosmic space. Pocket spaces can be found on the top and on the road level, creating interesting pause spaces where users from the MAK museum and the University of Applied arts can meet and exchange their interest in a progressive environment .

The curvilinear geometry start to get fragmented and to split up when openings are needed whereas for light requirement or for a an entrance . The option of crossing the bridge in a straight forward way is always possible but its design to attract users into socializing. Finally the permeable core works together with the under space frame and the two arcs on top of the bridge to make an unify structural system.
