Thanks to the special facade system, which consists of alternating reflective steel panels and glass panels, the building seems to dematerialize, blending with the surrounding environment. The reflective steel panels are characterized by different depths depending on their position, assuring always different visual effects depending on the side from which the building is enjoyed. The facade effect guarantees a strong dynamism to the building itself.

These connections create stairs, terraces or slopes, hosting conference rooms or outdoor auditorium, providing a functional layout extremely varied and flexible.
