The concept of the building is a continous volume which integrates different uses of the program, offering a singular and unify image. The volume inspiration comes from the local rocks and it rises aboved the street level, creating accesses to the inside and facilitating pedestrian flows from the street to the inner plazza. That way, interesting views attract the public inside the building.

In addition, a continuous commercial front is generated toward both streets: public and interior. Inside the plot, the proximity to the river is used to create a widening at the sides of the river, which penetrates into the plot and generates a small waterfall and a water layer.
