From the architect. The proposed volume arises from the interaction of three independent blocks, oriented to better enjoy the patio.
The interior noble spaces were oriented between East and West, intending in this way to create a direct relationship with the outside world, enhance solar gain and therefore create a habitable space with great visual permeability.
The color and materials used aim at the integration with the surrounding volumes, proposing only the use of color as a reflection of the materials themselves, where white and gray give the desired continuity between the existing and proposed.
