Note: 

In the reception and meeting area, we made an extensive demolition: we created a two-story high ceiling, destroyed the floor and removed every plaster of the original walls, in a form of “architectural archaeology”. Inside this space with a demolished aspect, we created a pure, clean, white path leading the visitor to the two meeting rooms – entirely white blocks inside those ruins. The rest of the space was filled with the same gravel of the façade, and it is in that “inter-space” that the exhibition of the office’s projects will be mounted, almost as a gallery amidst the building’s ruins.
