Regardingcomposition, the plans are grouped in twos, giving the façade a greater, lessfragmented scale.

The window model, represented in the sliding elements of the exterior façades, ismoved to the inner façade. A puzzle of grey-toned pieces is composed based onthis model, "pixelizing" the inner façade like a large mural.

Theincorporation of a large tree in this inner space allows the lighter areas ofthe puzzle to relate to its presence. Besides the large openings made onfaçades, the patio opens up on ground floor on the shorter sides, north andsouth. Stands over the car ramp provide the image of public space.

Theconstruction system of the cladding, before the glass façade, is made up ofcontinuous insulating cladding that guarantees the absence of thermal bridges.
