The building’s load-bearing structure combines simplicity and solidity: the exposed wooden roof structure rests on concrete beams, which in turn are supported by rafters and the concrete core forming the stairwell. If the building were to change use, all the levels of the structure could be reconfigured from scratch without much expense.
The roof and facade are both clad with prefabricated wooden elements. The roof looks like a sawtooth roof, but in reality it is not as such because both sides are closed. The sloping south side is covered with photovoltaic tiles. Between the windows of the south facade, instead of dark wood panels, are used screen-printed photovoltaic modules.
The photovoltaic bands protrude slightly from the facade to face exactly south, while the windows and doors are oriented slightly east, creating a « folded » facade.
