Text description provided by the architects. This is an apparently flat site with an irregular shape. It has a total area of 1227.35 m2. It is a residential complex composed of an apartment building with floor heights of 3.15 m., which houses a total of 14 apartments in four levels, and a shared parking with a floor height of 4.50 m.


The building has pedestrian access through a square that leads to a lobby, which in turn leads to the accesses of each apartment, and vehicular access through a ramp that leads down to the parking area.
