An extensive restructuring which covered almost all parts of the original building. An intervention that upgrading the existing part and adds a new side wing. The hill level is lowered and is then changed the mode of access for those coming from the street.


The new volume is integrated into the existing body through a glass surface treated with varying degrees of transparency, which surrounds the side faces and imparts continuity to the statements. All the bodies of the new building are coated, on one side, by a lateral tape is removed from the bodies themselves.


The facade, although it has received some upgrades, remained unchanged, as well as the rear tail. The inner courtyard is transformed into a large closed room by a canopy cover to maximize the illumination by the sun.


The intervention is due to the architecture style high-tech, in the exteriors, both in the interior.
