The search to maximise the compatibility between the design choices and the character of the existing structure hinged around the adoption of non invasive technical solutions inspiring to a minimal intervention philosophy. Avoiding in the technical alterations required for accessibility, sanitary services and environmental comfort to demolish or alter of the original walls.

The shoring up of the individual structures and the overall static improvement of the complex was obtained, for the roofs, through the connection of the trusses e beams with timber stringer-courses along their supports. While the first floor was consolidated by laying a concrete slab firmly secured to the perimeter walls and adding steel tie beams complete with anchor plates and couplings.
