The architectural solution has a contemporary character with an organic and a visual plastic language that try the integration with the surroundings, through some platforms articulated and interconnected of these two buildings and that provide the visitor with a gradual approach of building and landscape shown.

The skin of the building reflects the intention of integration with the landscape, using the wood like a natural element, with an expression that refers us to the image of reeds and palisades. It is anticipated that the exposure of the wood to the environment contributes to modifying his natural tone and becomes similar to the color of the surroundings environment.
