The curvature of the northern concrete block wall appears to give the building more volume and weight; an impression that is, however, revoked by the thin layer of ultramarine paint that allows the brush stroke to remain visible. The impression of fragility is also emphasised by the manifestation of the construction joint on the street facade with its eccentrically placed, prefabricated reinforced-concrete window opening.
