Text description provided by the architects. The new projected residential building maintains the existing facade to Corcega Street and to the Caputxins Passage, while the rest of the ancient construction has been demolished.

The building occupies the maximum volume allowed in the plot. On the back side the volume breaks and moves back to match with the neighboring building. Due to the characteristics of the volume, 30 apartments appear grouped in 8 different typologies: duplex on the ground floor with private backyard and simplex on the upper floors.

The new facade is defined by painted steel shutters. The individual windows are grouped in bigger bars unifying the whole. The shutter’s structure is advanced to the plane of the facade to generate terraces. These are conceived as an extension of the adjacent interior space.
