It is a compact building of two stories and continuous linear development, in a single gesture, it provides order to the parcel, grouping the recreation areas to the south, with optimal exposure to the sun, and access to the north, related to the urban core.

The program is solved in a sequential manner, the section adapts to the use. Natural light enters the corridors through the skylights.
