The horizontal volume cantilevers towards the south and west aligning to the existing geometry of the site. It is glassed on its south side to allow natural light into the building especially during the winter months. An opaque ventilated façade to the west protects the building from the predominant winter wind (gallego) as well as the most intense sun radiation in the warmest summer months.
