Technological legacy

The Jeroen Pit House ISEThe initial goal was to create a state-of-the-art multimedia space, but thanks to the continuous generosity of the collaborators of the audiovisual sector, the project has evolved to include technology in all eight apartments, one cinema room and presentations, the common area and the initial multimedia space.
