From the architect. Manipulate the interior space in relation with the neighbor buildings and the terrace that allows a view of the sea.

Our goal was maximize the exterior space, building a compact volume in 3 floor plans. The interior organization is generated around a central comunication corridor, to liberate space to the compartments.The dark phenolic plywood of the facade served as a ‘spacesuite’ that protects against the ‘radiation’ of reality, its context and its territory.
