The center occupies a large central site, facing onto the Lake Lucerne. The outline is reminiscent of a boat. From the building, the lake provides stunning views from the balcony - framed by the dramatic overhanging roof - and through the irregular windows of the main facade.
The play of spaces and masses creates a large transparent box, inside of which are three buildings that gradually step toward the interior. The three buildings include a concert hall, a flexible space for concerts and congresses, and an art gallery.
