The main façade becomes the true identifier of the building’s image. Its curved shape will tend to create a new boundary to the front urban space and, due to its orientation, it will reflect light towards the square, thus creating an open space with better environmental conditions.

The special treatment of the roof section will allow natural light to enter and will further enhance the independence of the main façade.
