Basic project must show a global and integrating idea with partial interventions, developed by other technicians.

The proposal is to develop the functional program with high respect for the former building, its spaces and main elements, tectonics, volumes, accesses, flows, etc.

Interventions focused on renovation of facilities and finishing elements, with a global vision of the building and trying to solve problems of use and normative.

Flows are clarified by using the courtyard as reference and central element around whom the building is organised. That way, the interference of public/private flows that takes place in the basement is avoided.
