The building’s interior also has columns, which further underline the importance of the entrance but are in fact linked to the air-conditioning system. In the spirit of Postmodernism, with its fondness for the large and the exaggerated, the air-conditioning equipment, normally concealed by a low ceiling, has been transformed into a structure of columns and beams accompanying the frame, which also shows an exaggerated effort to carry on the theme of the circular entrance gate. This gate completes a circle within the building while detached from the building itself and from the balcony of the floor above. The coffered ceiling of the gateway extends to the end of it and a glass pyramid in the center of the ceiling allows light to penetrate from above.
