The access space, despite being marked by the specific position of the walls was consolidated and reinforced by a marquee soft of steel that overlays as blanket over the building and makes it recognizable from far distances and makes it became a specific and particular Building location over this flat space without nearby targets.

Model 01

At first, the building was planned as a simple set of elements made of concrete, but sensing that this way the building would became visual blurring in the environment with soft tonalities, and would be lost in an area that later will be occupied by other small buildings. Was decided definitely to highlight these walls endowing them life and personality through a combination of brightly colored stripes, together with two shades of gray, making recognizable building in this environment without references and giving it a different character for the future integration in the built environment.
