With the northern access to the subway station is a group of buildings, which forms a kind of supply center and contains a cinema, a restaurant, a shop line, a public need institute and a base of the then Bewag (electricity works). The components are grouped around a courtyard; They are connected by a flat roof, which covers the passageways and accesses to the individual components. The roof - it is made of steel and concrete and has a wooden cladding on the bottom - opens in the middle of the plant around the halo. The exterior walls of all buildings are clad with white-glazed ceramic slabs, the flooring consists of concrete slabs.

The southern side of the courtyard is occupied by the subway entrance. To the west is the restaurant with a dining room and a club room.
