The Picus grounds were part of the historical industrial area along the Eindhovensch Canal. The basis for the urban planning is the unique position of the development area functioning as a link between different atmospheres.

The architecture and the use of materials of the new construction are based on various typologies of industrial buildings, but it is explicitly not a case of rebuilding. Together with the contrast between high and low-rise, surplus value is created. With respect to the historical developments in this area, the volumes of the three floors below the saddle roof are a continuation of the cultural-historical evolution. The existing Daf museum is enveloped by the main structure. The striking stepped building accommodates apartments and an extension of the museum on the canal side.
