The limitation of ten meters of the height of the construction combined with the front of ten meters of the property generated a square and bland volume to the street façade, which gave it a heavy appearance despite the small scale of the project. Therefore, the volume was sectioned with more slender proportions both horizontally and vertically to achieve lightness in its reading.
