Inhabited facade configured with balcony-patios like an extension of the workplace, which bringing added value to the project, feeling of expansion and relating with other working units. Opaque facade, protected with self projected shadows. The interior temperature is 5 to 8ºC lower than the exterior, with no energy use.
