This former sanctuary for women consists of a basement of communal and administrative spaces below a slab-shaped block containing living quarters and a double-height chapel. Much thought has been given to the quality of the interior daylighting. The unsatisfactory state of the ground led to the use of point foundations to hoist the steel structure into place. Outer walls that look solid in fact consist of a lightweight inner leaf and an outer leaf of plastered wire mesh and stucco. Following a brief period as an institute of professional education the building is now home to a firm of architects after being restored in 2003.
