With the renovation in 2007 the building has been dismantled to achieve a more urban scale, giving rise to a set of new volumes and façades that combine different materials and treatments. The roofs have been modified, and the original height has been altered, raising them to allow natural light to enter and creating new skylights. The communal areas are enlarged, creating three environments differentiated by colors and lighting. Accesses and walkways have also been rationalized, to create new meeting points for visitors.
