The upper floors of the building are closed with a entirely glass curtain wall. Only the first floor, the basement, and the back façade are clad with a very linear wall cladding in Brazilian green-gray slate. The pieces are completely lengthened and placed horizontally, making the building feel light while at the same time serious. Due to the characteristics of the slate, the PF-ALU/HTR system was used, since it guarantees perfect support with a material which cannot be fastened by the width of the panels since, due to its composition, it will easily slough off.
