The blocks accompany the lot´s format and declivity, and are united by a corten steel grid composing the cover. The grid with 2 thousand square meters stands out in the complex due to its dimensions as well as for creating a central plaza which large trees were planted.

This covering grid crosses a 30 meters span and sits on seven concrete blades supporting a load of 50 tons. At some points the grid presents large openings leaving room for the tree tops.
