This building will be used for the Municipal Housing Enterprise offices. It is formed by two parallel sections that unite in the frontal façade, destined to general use, which flank a central atrium. This atrium has several uses: on the one hand is the main entrance, on the other is a room, but it also acts as a climate regulator. Apart from the two storeys for offices, there are two low-level storeys for an auditorium, archives and parking lot. The building´s skin is curtain wall with a transparent glazing in the premises and opaque lacquered glasses in the blind areas; most of the holes have domotically regulated sunscreen slats or a protection glazing. The solar energy collection is done by means of a PVC sheet which incorporates photovoltaic elements.
