The proposal results in a double-height space to accommodate its activities on two levels. Thus, according to the privacy and functionality of the program the activities have been distributed on two platforms connected by a spiral staircase.

The public and customer area, with direct access from the street, is at the lower level. On the higher floor is the private office, delimited by a floating table turned towards the mezzanine and the street views. At the bottom there are a toilet and a storage space that create a service area.
