For the west orientation, the building is stepped, each floor cantilevered out from the one below in such a way that the building shades itself. For the northern orientation, this section is inverted, thus recovering the floor space lost in setbacks. This generates different curves on each floor. The building begins to vibrate. We then added further layers of overlapping glazing. This was screen printed with different degrees of density. By setting them at the precise distance and only screen printing certain parts, they have made these printed panes of glass add on each other in summer, reducing the transparency of the wall in accordance with the angle of the sun's rays and thus reducing the greenhouse effect, while in winter, total transparency is achieved and the sun heats up the interior, reducing the building's overall energy consumption.
