Because of strong emotional implications, the architects had to understand the mood of the user, who at a moment of contemplation would not care very much for any aesthetics. At the same time the architects wanted to create a space that can create a spritual mood. For this reason, the building refers to ancient buidings that were designed for this purpose, like the Egyptian 'Mastabas' or some Mayan buildings in Palenque. A project of this nature must encourage introspection and peaceful visual harmony through a discrete use of materials and lighting. The building's façade is completely covered by Grissal flamed granite. The building welcomes the visitor through a high, triangular-shaped, wooden door which leads to an access tunnel in the same shape, creating a solemn atmosphere as you enter. This darkening experience at the entrance ends when the hallway opens to a large, double-height granite hall illuminated by light coming from the indoor courtyard.
