The portal of access to the housings has an own air of the 70s, is designed by means of a magnificent combination of noble materials, since they are Macael's white marble in wide spaces, the wood treated with a more domestic character and the carpentry of stainless steel on the outside. The material criteria are respected, by means of the use of 3 materials that shape nowadays the portal: Macael's marble, wood, and stainless steel. There are promoted the primary lines of exterior composition, by means of the reuse of the marble and the exterior carpentry.
