The architect used for the facade 6.000 glass blocks strung together by stainless steel, to raise a soundproof wall (8.6 x 8.6m) above the ground garage level. The glass wall, translucent or transparent depending on light conditions, animates the street and allows light and air to pass through the enclosed courtyard garden.
