The volume of the buildings, sometimes by size and other by the proximity of the viewer who observes, is completely impossible to perceive, and therefore its force, its identity and its image as a symbol.

Located in an industrial enviroment within the city, this facade renovation project of a 5-stores building for the CUALTIS Headquarters - although it could seem simple - deepens on the conception of building as a symbol, an icon that enters in the collective ideals. DENORTE has started is corporative architecture carrer with it, and the artist SUSO33 has been in charge of embody his known presences, confronting the building and the user's scales, transforming the white lattice in a huge canvas. The architectural photographer David Frutos brings us closer to this work.
