The façade of the building that’s facing the street has a very eye-catching look. It features a series of compartments that delimitate different areas and that are mostly guided by the placement of the windows. These compartments have various dimensions and the façade is in continuous transformation, depending on the angle and position of the viewer. The light also has an important role determining the overall look of the headquarters building.
