The building forms a closed box which opens onto the square to reveal its public function by means of a huge translucent glass front which softens the views from either side, bringing the outside indoors, offering clarity and light to the main pool area. The materials and finishing of the posterior north and east facades are tall white concrete walls with small spaces, similar to surrounding existing buildings.
