Text description provided by the architects. We propose a housing building in a simple way that favors freedom of being. At an urban level, we propose a neutral building as a silent pause in the middle of the neighborhood. At night, it becomes a torch of white light. We try not to condition the inhabitants, offering a field of unlimited possibility in creative freedom, as a blank canvas, an opportunity to devise a different way of life. The building investigates the limits of transparency and diversity. The south facade does not divide interior from exterior. The facade opens to the views, establishing multiple relationships with the environment. We intend to recover cross ventilation, natural light, and contact with nature. A simple architecture, beyond the framework of the boundaries of architecture, where the inhabitants can freely decide where the limit of the architecture is.
