English term or phrase: strongly retreated against the facade
Si tratta della descrizione di un edificio. La frase incriminata è la seguente:

"There are six levels of office facilities with the highest level *strongly retreated against the facade* to make the building seem much lower than it really is."

Non sono sicura di capire bene...significa che l'ultimo piano è piu stretto? Non capisco quell'"against"...qualcuno riesce ad aiutarmi?
Grazie mille in anticipo!!
