It was decided to adopt a typology of open blocks in the plot, the final result was a large spatial unit with two linear blocks that are adapted to the topography of the plot. With this volumetric distribution is achieved an optimum performance of the plot in terms of number of houses and their quality, and at the same time reflects the urban’s application.
