How count polygons (buildings in area) without information loss

Hi, I'm pretty new with GIS and ArcGIS, so sorry for my not fully appropriate technical language.


Have two features:

1) different areas = big polygons, in violet color

2) buildings inside area = smaller polygons, pink color


I need to count how many buildings are into each area. I wanted to use this (count overlapping polygon): 

but I need to ''merge'' (?) the features into one, keeping the different polygons (I've tried different commands, and sometimes they merge features but also polygons, so I lost my buildings in a nutshell).


How can I solve?

Thank you
