Text description provided by the architects. The Project is located in the periphery of Cala Rajada, a village in the north-east of Mallorca. The development consists of two buildings on a single site and a green area between them for shared use.

In the first phase, 15 dwellings were constructed in a compact building with four apartments per floor, set out to maximize the southern orientation of each one, reduce vertical connections as far as possible, and consolidate high humidity zones.
