The strictest demands of the architect:
Extremely slim facade supports incorporating mature structural engineering;
Steel tube reinforcement using special stainless steel consoles to absorb wind and suction forces arrival bridges with interior glass walls and roofs, the former being secured above with flat steel spiders, which simultaneously link the support structure of the glass roofs and guarantee the stability of the walls.
