The apartments are contained in boxes of exposed concrete, one above the other. This situation allows to rotate each box as needed, creating different scenarios in each apartment.

At the rear block, the apartments located around the courtyard are interlaced at second level, showing us the interior program through the use of transparencies and opacities.
