The project clearly reveals the particular connotation of the building, obtained through the use of different languages in the design of the elevations: the more articulated facade facing the valley contains all of the loggias of the living areas; the other elevation, conformed as a backdrop to the road leading to the Quartaccio Complex, is more austere and compact and finished in masonry.
