The project was looking for a natural integration in the already built area. The idea was to unify both building´s design, not only with materials and finishes, but creating a continuous and singular façade of the whole. This was achieved by creating a new symmetry with the axis in the main street of the offices.

The blocks were divided on the upper floors of the back party wall, in order to let the sunlight in at the back of the building and enable cross ventilation in all the premises.

The flat roofs of the attics were designed as garden areas which are seen from the premises. These also collect and filter rain water, reusing it for sanitary facilities.
