The Building consists of two separate volumes, which share the main hall, covered by an aluminum structure, that is the characterizing design element, forming an atrium access public space, wich it´s the main architectural resource to optimize the energy efficiency of the building, by minimizing the solar radiation on the curtain wall. This, complemented with other technical resources, allowed to reach LEED GOLD Certification – Core & Shell of USGBC (LEED Consultant, B-Green).
