Text description provided by the architects. Being charged by an architect client, on a 12.5 meters front by 25 meters long site 8 apartments are projected, 2 per floor arranged longitudinally and interrupted by three voids: a central one for services and two lateral ones for terraces that will be covered by climbing plants working as filter in-between public and private spaces.

Access to the building is through a pastel glossy pink painted Boolean in contrast with the black pigmented concrete facade, poured in wooden boxes and modulated every 60x90 centimeters with random perforations that allow a 40% of visibility, light and ventilation. 

Each apartment has 2 to 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, kitchen, living room, dinning room, 2 parking spaces, storage room and roof garden.
