Floor Plan / Lots 1-4

The building materials for the exterior were chosen to minimize the maintenance required and ensuring good durability and aging. The brown brick was chosen to balance natural light. The facades are composed with lacquered glass panels and plywood to give a light image contrasting with the brick. The opposition between private and public, weight and lightness are one of the main characteristics of the project.
