Text description provided by the architects. The starting point for the architectural approach of this project was a piece of “virgin” land, the form and profile of which gave little indication of the mutations to come.

We therefore considered the site as a starting point, a “base” on which different types of architecture could be developed.

Although the structure of this “base” had been defined perfectly on an urban scale by the François Grether studio, our experience leads us to think that the individual architectural quality of each building is an essential element in the global success of a project.

The residential apartment building named Esteban was thought up in this context, bearing in mind that its architecture had to show strong enough force and character to help build up the identity of the future neighbourhood, while at the same time remaining simple and well-conceived to interact smoothly with the other constructions.
