The project revolves around the great central atrium covered by a new monumental roof permeable to the passage of natural light. Surrounding it, a crown of auxiliary uses open to the surrounding streets. The intervention helps to filter the internal relationship and links the project to its context. The functional program organizes in two clearly differentiated zones. The public access areas and the administration areas and internal storage. All accesses and movements are barrier-free and suitable for people with reduced mobility.
