The building is composed of two wings that hold the two main directrix of the plot. That makes the L-shaped plan face south, counting on views of the river and the north façade of the city core. The building contributes to finish an unfinished part of the city. The starting point has been to make a general shape, nine floors high, that emphasizes the ensemble's horizontality. Within this shape, a work on the profile has been done, making two cuts in the last four floors both in the vertex of the plan and in the east end. The central cut articulates the joining between the wings. The shaping of the building comes from the relationship between the overall layout and the constructive system that defines the encircling, made up of walls clad with grey metallic ceramics panels. These define a background on which longitudinal cantilever slabs have been made, provided with sliding, aluminium louvres panels that make up double façades.
