The building was designed and constructed, entirely new, in 2014, after the previous building collapsed in 2011. The new design proposes an identity that mostly concerns on creating a completely new facade with three black panels of prefabricated monolithic and heavy concrete, integrating the windows.

Each floor becomes a small apartment except for the ground floor that becomes a duplex unit with a garden. The interiors also incorporate the traditional central stair with a skylight to all the internal spaces and circulations.

The new construction finally reflects the metric and the characteristics of the traditional buildings, representing a possible reinterpretation of the collective housing in the historical centre.
