The structure, made entirely out of reinforced concrete, is lightest in the finishes made mainly out of aluminium and glass.
One of the building's façades, on the second floor, is entirely covered with a system of sunshades, while the walls on the ground floor are transparent. Here too the architects obviously wanted to establish continuity with the city around the building. The square in front of the building becomes a sort of pre-entrance hall, while the interiors could be viewed as a continuation of the city outside.
The result is a simple building which is well-designed down to the tiniest detail, where balance is established through appropriate choice of materials, colours and forms.
