In talking about the functional organization of the building, the rectangular block forms the independent buildings of the State Duma and Federation Council, the S and n-shaped links form the premises for collaborative work of deputies and members of the federation council, including auxiliary services. The first 6 floors are reserved for the library.

The main car park is completely isolated in a separate “brick” that is set against the main building from behind and is connected to it with a covered passage that serves as the continuation of the main lobby.

In spite of the general prism shape of the building, the architects carve out a niche at the corner facing the Moskva River, probably as an urban window from the building. This niche is what gives the building its characteristic architectural presence. The coating is enhanced to reinforce its presence by the use of copper metallic panels. The most interesting element in this niche is the oblong shape, which serves as the convention halls.

The joining block that gives the n shape and connects the two buildings is 3 floors thick and serves as offices for supporting staff.

In all this, the proposal by the architects breaks from the surrounding architecture and will go on to mark the riverfront.
