The building is located in an area of ??approximately 534 m2, consisting of several modules connected together, characterized by arranging volumetric and their arrangement in plan. From the architectural point of view (and structure), it should be noted the uniqueness of roofs, in respect to its geometry and to its stereotomy.
The structure consists of solid slabs, flat and inclined, and with walls 20 cm and 25 cm thick, and the location of the vertical reinforced concrete elements simultaneously conditioned by the architecture and requirements-oriented structure. The slabs coverage thus supporting walls ensuring a consistency of effort that enables efficient operation in terms of structural deformations.
