From the exterior, the building is perceived as a volume made up of a ground-floor base with two upper floors in the form of a parallelepiped. The block housing the technical services is designed as an annexe to the main volumes. Where the building overlooks Avinguda Mancomunitats Comarcals, the upper parallelepiped projects beyond the ground floor, forming an eave that shelters the building's entrance and creating a space of transition between the street and the interior. The ground-floor base is dark-coloured quartzite. The upper volume has a hard, massive finish on three sides, whereas the west façade comprises a more generous, glazed plane with the addition of adjustable vertical slats to provide protection from the afternoon sun and as a security measure. Both the urban implementation and the characteristics of the site suggest a compact building that exploits the lengthwise geometry of the plot.
