The basic concept of this project was to make the new structure as a conceptually independent system. The building seeks to distinguish itself from the existing building in form and aesthetics, however without to subdue it. It asserts itself as a new emancipated element, revealing a new program and a distinctive architectural policy, due to the contemporary context and situation. An accurate architectural language is intended, but by an unpretentious way, though full of charm and interest. Its volumetric lens maximizes the potential of organizing interior as an open space and a plurality of uses.

The micro-perforated sheet metal facade serves as a sunscreen, shade and perforated “cover” that maximizes the interior privacy. It was seen as an intervening surface, capable of providing the building plus interest, with a distinct identity. The image represents the theme of a race, combining the building to the characteristic elements of the site.
