The final result reflects a discreet but rigorous and coherent exterior image, highlighting the white screen-printed glass in the cladding of the façades and the marking of the vertical profiles that control the intensity of natural light in the interior spaces, completing the volumetry of the showroom cabinet. At night, the glass panels are transformed into boxes of white light where the vertical profiles allow to filter the image of the interior space of the offices and terraces.
