The façade of the structure is covered with 4 modules with different finishes and widths: fixed opaque, open opaque, fixed glass and inclined glass.
The modules are alternated and repeated on the basis of rules which vary in different floors; the upper floors have a greater prevalence of the inclined glass module, up to the roof, built entirely out of clear glass surfaces. The work “Passement” by artist Nathalie Elemento, in front of the building, establishes a link between the architecture and the park that will be opened across from it.
