Built on existing foundations on the site, the office apparently floats on a reflecting pool that mediates the openings of the working spaces to the exterior views, modulated by the rhythm of columns that reinforces the formal attributes of the structure. Among the strategic location of the service areas, the low glass openings allow a better climate control in the east-west facades, and reinforces the difference and hierarchy between office and technical reserve, housed in an closed climate controlled box, adapted to the most modern conservation standards.
