It's a great challenge to upgrade historical buildings so that they meet the dictates of our present without losing their charm and identity. A new intervention is acceptable only if it doesn’t disturb the historical context. Even better is if the structure of new and old together would enhance one another’s value.
In my opinion, in the making of this vestibule, the re-use of the existing materials or the style of the historical building should be very low and discreet. This is a new, contemporary intervention, and it has to make the statement that it belongs to the present. The contrast with the old will make that enhancement of value possible. The only existent material that it is used in this proposal is the brown granite, to hide the structure that holds the vestibule independent of the existing facade- not to damage it. The cuts of the volume are clear and sharp. The low number of new materials used (glass and metal for the façade, concrete for the ramp) does not overwhelm the canvas of the existing façade, already full of elements of a particular architectural style.
I can also provide more CAD drawings or details if needed.
