In the Park, a play of successive planted terraces, accessible in some places, lightens the built mass by the differentiated expression of the volumes according to floor level. The open and lighten atrium opens up onto works room and leisure space. The pattern of the vertical openings on the facades alternates with a facing of golden screen-printed opalescent glass that increases the building’s effect of transparency. The material used have an enamelled ceramic finish with undulating relief, creating a play of vibrating light along the external walls.
