The design of the building reflects the dual nature of its surroundings and uses different materials to eliminate borders. It channels the dynamism of the urban development zone of Batignolles and connects two different urban conditions.

An array of ornamentation on the brick facade connects the two expressions of the city-its center and the suburbs.
