The design of its concrete street facade follows the curved topography of the road and was informed by largely blank walls found in Romanesque architecture and at the Pisa Baptistery. It is made up of pitched, bush-hammered panels that are slotted within a gridded exoskeleton and punctuated only by the small entrance.
