Site conditions play an important role in this proposal consisting of a compact block with a central garden.

The form of this block will be guided by attitudes regarding inner garden, sunlight and building's footprint.

The main idea, indeed, is to preserve and enhance the existing landscape by proposing a compact building, a volume that will connect the diversity of the program, as well as to minimize the future building's footprint.

As mentioned above, the building will be manipulated to allow for a maximum conservation of the identity of the site.

It would have been interesting to have more information on construction materials and energy-saving strategy that will be used for this design.
