The building is conceived as a new element that connects the campus of the University (Universidad de Los Andes), concentrating uses and flows from these parts to the building. It aims to integrate pedestrian through places like the access plaza and the first floor gallery.

The mixed use of parking and postgraduate classrooms is represented in its pure and forceful geometry which clearly expresses this duality through the materials used in the façade, which permits to low the impact of the building in the area as a transition of uses between housing and mixed uses of the university.

The concept of terrace garden is presented on the upper floors of the building in which the interior spaces open to gardens and contemplation areas, which integrating the visual mountains and the city, makes this project a great place to stay.
