From the architect. Our project in Santa Eugenia de Berga starts with a very simple question: how can we design a Social Housing project with a misguided solar orientation?

The project is located on the edge in the city at the last block overlooking to the west planned green areas of the countryside. The Master Plan defines a linear volume of 14m depth and 60m length. The two large main facades has a very different and unbalanced solar and views conditions.

The street facade, facing West, is overlooking the green areas and landscape; The rear facade, facing east, is focused on a new building located on a slope, which prevents the sun from East to reach the facade.

The project plays with this contradictory condition of having on the West façade the worst solar orientation and the best views to the landscape. Ensuring that all the apartments have a direct relationship with the landscape facing west we propose a BRISSE-SOLEIL HANDRAIL. A piece which works as protector of the West sun and also defines a place where you can enjoy the countryside views.

The BRISSE-SOLEIL HANDRAIL designed is made by pieces of 2 m wide, located in a balcony one step below the interior level pavement of the apartments. This piece helps to define a porch, protecting all façade windows from the vertical summer sun but allowing winter West sun get inside the interior of every apartment. The porch provides to all the flats an outer space area where you can develop different activities

The BRISSE-SOLEIL HANDRAIL is made by aluminum perforated panels permeable to the landscape.

This BRISSE-SOLEIL HANDRAIL is placed literally attached to a compact volume of 18 apartments 70 square meters. The step between the terrace and the flats allows from the inside of the apartments to see the West landscape without visual obstruction.
