In order to preserve the essence of the building, all exterior walls are maintained, new windows are opened in order to improve the relationship between interior and exterior, and allowing to increase the amount of natural lighting. The roof is completely altered, and with an increase in height and the addition of skylights, an improvement in natural light and space is sought for a new intermediate floor, which significantly increases the potential of the building's interiors.

The agricultural support areas are arranged in the middle and the east of the building. They are basically storage space for what is needed in agricultural activity. These spaces are arranged on two floors, seeking to effectively increase the useful areas for this purpose. The agricultural support areas have an entrance hall that relates to the south side of the building with a support washroom.
