Text description provided by the architects. Two curved enclosures with a translucent thickness define two rounded and broad areas. The interiors are light and enveloping spaces, with different textures on white, with horizontal disassembled designs that draw on the materials the curved geometry. Outside, the heavier and colored exteriors also have vague boundaries, with perforated walls delimiting materials with depth.

The opening of the operable parts connects both spaces, forming a continuous extension with flexible use. A blue plane with a broken geometry, formed by the repetition of concave elements, closes the smaller spaces.

The relief of the roofs models both the space and the sound. Stones with their texture and fabrics underline the synthetic and glossy of the other surfaces, and the more weightless consistencies of luminous materials. Domed shapes, double doors, textile coverings are images that introduce an atmosphere of palace.
