From the street, the facade remains blind, somewhat aggressive, a vertical landmark with the name is the door to an atypical space in the interior, and the only access point to the offices. As a pause between the exterior and the interior, take place the access square, a transition space and the main illumination source in the interior space, the only one green place at the office. The interior façade is configured with doors and vaults according to the needs, emphasizing the views to the access point.

The interior space is delimited by the sliding glass panels, which allows having an overview of the office but safeguarding the isolation of each zone; These planes can be opened or closed according to the space needs, allow an adaptive and variable use of it. In the age of the work área, it takes place a magnetized sliding whiteboard, the panel for the generation of ideas, according to its opening allows giving more privacy to the service areas.

In the palette of materials, the naked materials of the warehouse are predominant, with concrete block walls and rugged flat rough and rustic character, contrasting with the interior furnishings and the crystalline cleanliness.
