From the street, a vehicular ramp provides access to the official reception hall within a double-height gallery. The ground floor is used as a parking garage. All multi-height workshops and halls are accessible from the first floor. These comprise cinema studios, technical workshops, and a 600-seat theatre. The upper floors house administrative offices, archives, and a restaurant. It is a steel frame structure with concrete core, aluminum curtain walls, and plaster cardboard interior walls.
