The building has two main uses. The ground floor houses the Senior Center, a coffee shop, two offices and a multipurpose room. On the ground floor is the Casal de Barri, a library and three multi-purpose rooms. The core bathrooms, stairs and elevator are located at the corner, to optimize the distribution.

The building responds to a modular system to redistribute from the general scheme.
