The original head office of the “Lombardy Road Railways Society”, standing from nineteenth and twentieth century, showed highly characterizing architectural elements, which were the basis of the restore of the building: structural pilasters and profiles in old exposed brick, inserts gneiss stone in the facade and construction details, and a cast iron column molded with floral motifs typical of the late nineteenth century.
