The Deutsche Bank Headquarters form the head of the new Bicocca district facing the city center of Milan. A continuous seven-storey building has a double "C" shaped plan that borders the edge of the city block and forms an internal square with its three terminal fronts. Part of the plan is rotated towards a green hill placed on the north side and therefore the building acknowledges the natural landscape within its own space. Each of the building wings has its own independent entry accessed from the central square. At the center is a larger double-height lobby that forms the heart of the building. The exterior cladding is a black reflective polished granite for the base and grey Repen for the upper floors.
