The project of tenso-umbrella structure hanging on the cover floor forms a “double active skin” facade, which is unique for materials and technologies.

The external skin is a glass wall made up of HST toughened slabs of 15 mm, they have a title disposition/arrangement supported through a single 316L stailess steel rope; the upkeep is an extra-bright glass in triple layer, the sun-shade laminas are made up of white, statuary marble from Carrara strongly veined, thin and sticked on glass support with a translucent result and with a design whose veins are evident of a unique impression; the inner skin is realized in side elevations with a thermal cut of a specific extrusion.
