Text description provided by the architects. In our spatial searches, mosconi 3 adds to the concepts of open ground floor and permeability between urban and semi-private spaces, experimentation in the succession of spaces and boundaries within 3 functional units that make up the project.
Continuity with the street is through am open ground floor on which a series of boxes containing the housing units appear to float: a heavier box that encloses the first two identical floors, and another lighter box off from the previous one with a glazed light transition.
A prism clad in wood (services container) creates the ground floor access generating the boundary between the semi-public and semi-private space.
This same services box is the one that will articulate the different spaces of each floor.
The functional units feature a succession of terraces between environments, a spatial continuity that links the different urban spaces (courtyards) and generate cross ventilation and natural lighting.
The structure of the parasol system made of iron and wood, fixed and mobile, is what will limit the entry of light and heat, as well as security and privacy, as a transition element between urban-terrace-private space, which contributes to sustainability, and finishes the volume of the project, closing and intensifying the concrete boxes.
