Exteriors materials – For the exterior of the building was used a closing mixed glass, concrete block and metal orange fencing offering security, ventilation to visual comfort.

Interiors materials – The interior rooms are related to the concrete brick wall with OSB manufactured wood planks, reducing the temperature to making the space more welcoming.
