Having been used over the years for a variety of purposes this building is now once again the Ateneo (Athenaeum). The volume-space is shaped by the variously straight and curved lines of the bordering streets. The inflexion of the first floor effects a play of volume-spaces, whereby the corner of the building is retroussÚ. The straight-edged rhythm of the indentations of the south fašade are offset by the plainer curved fašade.
