The architects have respected the authorized size (fire regulation for a building with non-enclosed staircases) to determine the volume of this three-storey building with an attic level and a basement level by maximizing its height as required by the building law.

Vertical aluminium louvers ensure the implantation of the building on the site and the diffusion of maximum levels of natural light.
