How to display View into a specific Zone/Shape

In my module, I created a route, controller and view for the action.

When I visit the page, all I get is the contents of the view. Is there a way to display that specific view into a zone in the template/theme? Or if possible, a specific shape?

Thanks @Piedone! Can we specify the zone where to display the view though?

for that, you'll need to create a widget.
but I also would like to know whether orchard could support your scenario as well. It would be great if it can.
