Although the two functional parts of the building, the southern and the northern body, are clearly distinguishable, the architectural language common for the two areas, both in terms of facades and in the performance of the roofs, gives the new APPM complex a unity and compactness that make it clearly independent of the context.
The atrium, with its strategic location within the building, in addition to having a properly functional role, in fact hosts the main vertical connections and internal horizontal connections, has the role of a semi-private collective space capable of representing a place of relationship, aggregation and fosters social interaction.
To make the rooms adaptable to different needs, the building has different degrees of transformability made possible by the functional layout that allows independence for each floor of the northern body and the possibility of dividing the southern body into two independent parts.
In particular, these transformation possibilities are made available by the position of the stairwells and elevators, by the position of the installation cables and the consequent possibility of having several independent accesses.
