Text description provided by the architects. The Jufre Housing Building implies a further instance in the investigation initiated with the Acha Housing Units about the possibilities that appear while operating in the urban environment concerning the ways in which the city can be lived.

In this sense, the building moves itself within these rough parameters that appear when a lot is subjected to the edification code and the interests of the real estate market. The Jufre Housing Building achieves a breach in the investigation of urban living, merging in this case with the adjacent lot, property of a friend.

In that merge of two different lots, the building plays with the edification code, allowing the generation of a mutual space of unusual environmental quality between them. It represents the trust in the possibilities of discovering and proposing new opportunities of cohabitation between different architectures, in a moment in which cities are strongly tending towards densification.
