    With a surface area of 180m2, is located on the 5th floor of an internal courtyard and includes 50 variable geometry pyramids that together form a kaleidoscope. The skylight is pentagonal in base of irregular sides and this causes that each structural element is unrepeated.

    The 62% of its surface is covered by glass photovoltaics. However, the skylight is lined on the inside with inverted rings and pyramids that hide the entire metal structure as well as all the photovoltaic glass panels, leaving only the transparent glass visible.

    Looking up to this inspiring piece Cubism is evoked. A distinctive experience is provided through the movement around the room and its particular change of light that make different colors appear switching perspectives. 

    A beautiful example of Bellapart’s solutions that Waste Less and Provide More.
