The outside area in your diagram is actually the gray area that you see outside the scene borders while you're working with a fla file. It takes your background color by the way.
Anyway you can have your module inside a movie clip and tile it with duplicateMovieClip and set their _x and _y positions. Then on an upper depth or level you can load your data with a rectangle (as the background of your scene area).
