Text description provided by the architects. To achieve a tension and duality between the existing situation and the foreseen intervention, the atmosphere is deliberately oriented towards streamlining, with a work on raw materials and an abstraction of spaces through the colour white. One of the envisioned goals of the design is to highlight the "materiality" of the two shale dividing walls, the fitting and lime mortar grouting of which attest the history of the building.

The appearance of shale, the building's main raw material, is made abstract behind the white paint coating. The intent is to emphasize the rough feel of the texture, as opposed to the smoothness of the plastering, the concrete and the floors.
