Spaces

With respect to urban planning, the five apartment blocks play the role of delimiting the city center. The volumes and elevations that have a particular relationship to the street are uniform in structure and color, complementing the heterogeneity of the surrounding and contributing to the guidance of residents and passersby. By contrast, the structural elements of the back, which areas are located domestic privacy, vary in their configuration, since plants continue block street curvature opening and arranged for receiving light Solar.

Each apartment has terraces and galleries complemented with lots of windows. Thanks to these intermediate areas, light can penetrate sufficiently into the interior of the departments.
