The vertical and horizontal development of the modular building, allows an adaptation to the topography and the adjustment of the building volume to the program; also allows a limitation of the height of the building in relation to the residential neighborhood. The new building is built in a modular complex form.

The size of the building is structured so as to assume the module of the existing houses in the district: is made up of prisms with an area of approximately 12x12m, lined up like dominoes. The single modular element is based on the size of a room of approximately 13m2 which also corresponds to the constructive structure of the building. The integration of the new building in the park is completed with the green cover of the roof.
