With the addition of two storeys on top and a mezzanine in the ground floor, the building had the opportunity for a new lease of life, a restoration of its best original elements and an upgrade of all fire and safety systems.

The upper additions was constructed of light weight structure to avoid overloading the existing walls, and it was assembled in a few weeks. The new balconies on the pointy end of the building have been constructed in steel and bolted to the old walls to ensure the stability of the corners.
