Text description provided by the architects. We firmly decided to see this project as an opportunity when we firstly faced this narrow plot (barely wide 7,40 meters, 18 meters deep) for 5 flats and property dwelling building.
This opportunity was brought forward when we first visited the plot in order to take advantage of facing a lively square, full of activity and a sunny façade.
We developed two openings in the prism we obtained as a result of the maximum floor area ratio for obtaining an interior patio for the dwellings and a centered skylight. This skylight allows passive ventilation (perimeter grille) apart from lighting up the building stairs.
We focused all our expressive capacity in the façade composition. We decided to setback the penthouse’s wall on the purpose of creating an accurate flying volume which defines a hollow which works as a balcony to the square ,protects the building entrance and makes the façade appear less svelte at the same time.
Inside this frame, our facade composition, with its apparent disorder, seeks to express its inhabitants individuality reflected in each home and represented by the furnishing which can be seen inside during summer nights.
Reaching this point, you must realize that you have lost the property of the building projected, since it belongs from now on to its inhabitants.
