The new external skin was made with “trespa” anthracite gray panels, which, together with the ventilated wall, have both the purpose of improving energy performances, and reach the aim of essentiality.

The ancient building has maintained the same color scheme of plasters, same fixtures and shutters, eaves and mantle, while the parapets of the new terraces are made of a modern structural glass.
