The ceramic lining acts as a load-bearing support to the facade original colour project, taking a technical-functional role as well as a decorative one. The geometrical structure of the ventilated wall that protects the building is defined by a strict orthogonal grid whose module corresponds to the tile dimensions. The porcelain stoneware wall, which descends down and turns into the floor covering the platforms, fully integrates with the other materials and even increases their value.
