The project focuses on placing the program units (16 units in total) on the limits of the lot, to create an interior parking lot, used also as a multipurpose space, where kids can play securely while being watched out from every program unit, creating at the same time air space between buildings, giving the sensation of having privacy and silent as a living experience in the complex. This condition also provides each unit the possibility of having as much as linear meters it could have, to provide proper lighting and crosswind to each unit, giving the sensation of a constant relationship between the interior and exterior environment. As a result of this interior/exterior relationship, a sense of neighborhood is created where users can in some way relate to each other without sacrificing privacy.

Using economic materials such as brick and typical masonry building system from the region, the complex stare itself as a game of textures that give the sensation of identity, playing with different kinds of lighting intensities that ensure comfortable living spaces, that can not only give enough natural light to the habitants, but a sense of “home”.
