An object is inserted in the park: a COMPACT BUILDING surrounded by free space, a piece with some DISCRETE and ELEGANT SINGULARITY, whose shape is born from the ECONOMY OF GestS that help a simple building to ARTICULARSE with the urban environment, also inviting tour it.
It is organized around an INTERIOR PATIO: on the outside it is shown TENSA and MOLDEADA, while inside the galleries present a more relaxed relationship between the common spaces and the houses. The accommodations are adjusted to avoid ‘blind’ testers and medianeras, turning the house to achieve a continuous volume at all times.
With massive facades and holes controlled and protected towards the streets, the building opens to the courtyard through a GALLERY of circulation SIFTED by a plant skin composed of climbing plants that colonize a metal mesh of variable density. The gallery behaves like an intimacy filter for the accommodation, bringing a changing background to the courtyard and favoring cross ventilation. The houses are oriented East-West, guaranteeing the optimal sun of their pieces and interior spaces.
According to criteria of compacting the program and maximum media economy, all the Common and Assistance Services on the ground floor of the building are proposed. To the East the administrative areas, and west, towards the wooded free space, the Common Services (Ludoteca, living-dining room and multipurpose room).
