Winning the tender launched by the client, the proposal operated a general facelift in the building, giving it a more modern look, while redesigning the exterior spaces in front of the building. The refurbishment intended to accommodate a new covered terrace area, adjacent to the indoor restaurant/buffet room, thus significantly increasing the room's capacity. The innovative character of the proposal was the technical solution found for the roof: the bioclimatic and lightweight design hides a solution of rotating blades that allow opening and closing the roof plan, shading or protecting the interior on rainy days.
