Text description provided by the architects. The building is placed in a typical party wall urban lot, in a block with an open expanse of train tracks in front. From the building you can see this magnificent industrial landscape and behind it, the river and its islands.

At the beginning of its construction the project suffered a program modification, the client decided to change the original plan from one apartment per floor to two units per floor. This modification resulted in an unexpected plan configuration.

The front façade, facing the river and good orientation affords a formal appearance, affords a deep balcony as expansion of the interiors and solar protection. The back façade, facing the city and the bad orientation, was formalized with a more domestic and casual image that connects it to its neighbors.
