Architect Togo Murano designed this large complex with a U-shape configuration so as to surround the sunken Japanese-style garden with a small pond and an equally small structure that originally served as a teahouse. The multi-story blocks are charaterized by well-proportioned volumes and the extensive us of cast aluminium louvers in modular system and arranged in front of the glass facades. This modern exterior is contrasted by a delicately “eclectic” interior. The centerpiece of the entrance hall is a curving staircase, which connects several floors.
