24 h architects managed to give the progressive building from the 1960s the necessary impetus by adding a lemniscate shape. The hardwood profiled strips by Lauro Gamela and Massaranduba on the central square provide a leaf pattern effect with their shadow.
A Brazilian type of wood Sapupira or Angelim Pedra was also chosen for the windows.
Wood was also used extensively on the inside of the building.
Floors are made of Iroko, Movingui and Keruing.
