The observer recognizes the spatial duality already seen outside, with two bright lanterns hanging from the façade. The expression of the project shows the different nature of the inside areas. The high metallic structure volumes can be reveal from the outside through the polycarbonate skin, and becomes the expression of the building. This metallic structure leans on the large concrete base which define de areas. With a sober design, made of reinforced concrete, the building was realised in a little more than a year.
