Then everything was easy: it was designed a simple aluminum curtain wall mixing just 4 types of cheap windows (about 1 mt x 1 mt): one with glass and a white frame (not operable), two types with a black aluminium frame (one type operable and one type not operable), one made just of a white frame with no glass (this type was used for the open loggia at the ground floor and for the roof).
