The Port’s concrete was used as the main material to contrast with the Board’s wood and this established the main line of work.

A fragmented building that responds to the different uses required. A part for services, open all day, an administration area, reception, maintaining between them a covered area leading to the the end of the quay.  On the Upper floor there is a private from which the port can be controlled. A band of white concrete wraps around the exterior spaces and unifies the different areas to create a focal point for the port.
