Form and function are defined considering the site’s context, and reinterpreting the traditional elements and spaces of buildings within the neighborhood, such as verticality and the window gaps repetitions, the absence of elements standing out from facades and the interior patios with natural lighting and ventilation.

21 apartments are modulated in a great introverted block, unfolding around several central patios, and fragmenting the volume in small groups of two or three households, creating close cohabitation among neighbors.

A security gate provides controlled access to the building. Afterwards, a landscaped corridor that plays the role of meeting point, leads to the stair blocks from which give access to each apartment and roof tops located in the fourth floor.

The use of concrete blocks lattice in the dividing walls allows to take advantage, both for the building and the neighbors, of the crossed ventilation and natural lighting generated by the gaps on both sides of the wall.
