The site is located at a crossroads on the Ruhr expressway and slopes downwards by one storey from south-west to north-east. The complex consists of the main building for the colliery administration, which has been moved far to the rear of the site due to the traffic noise, and a wing for the sales companies to the west with a separate entrance and access core. An extension planned for the east was not realised. The wings are connected to the stairwells of the main building via narrow bridges. The building structure is made of reinforced concrete, its façades are clad with white-grouted, matt black stoneware panels and the flush-mounted windows are painted white.
