Due to its unusual cubature the LVM 5 building has been nicknamed „the crystal“. This office building is a vertical tower with sloping facades atop a 3-storey plinth and was designed by Duk-Kyu Ryang and HPP. The perpendicular 18-storey tower with its sloping facades and 3-storey triangular plinth contains a total of 19,800 m² of gross floor space and comprises mainly offices. The glass sculpture of the building spirals unconventionally upwards at an angle. A bridge made entirely of glass creates a harmonious connection to the older neighbouring building.

The LVM 5 has already been awarded in the planning phase for its particular ecological construction with a DGNB gold certificate. The facade of the skyscraper has been designed as a double skin façade. Schneider was responsible for the complete primary façade, consisting of complex timber windows (Larch).
