The architectural project was designed with an emphasis on sustainability, both in construction and in operationalization of the building. It also features references to the natural attractions of the region, where the transparency and color of the water are unique aspects.

Similarly, the color indigo adopted in certain internal spaces refers to the waters of the blue lake grotto, the city’s most iconic place. In order to mitigate the environmental impact of the construction process, its structure was designed predominantly in trusses and metal pillars.

The interior, in turn, is made in plasterboard. Linear openings in the cantilevered floor end over the water surface, plus the ridge vent along the thermoacoustic coverage, promote aeration while reducing the need for mechanical ventilation systems in the lobby.

The building is equipped with photovoltaic panels to provide energy self-sufficiency, as well as systems for reusing rainwater. It has 718.40 square meters in built area, distributed over two stories.
