How a new building will relate to the context and the people?
We found the answer in the unique heritage of a nearby ancient fishermen neighborhood that inspired our minds, creating a design which was as contemporary as spontaneous architectural evolution. We have reinterpreted the typical painted wooden window – blinds with an additional value by transforming them into a secondary skin with different mechanical movements in order to give residents the opportunity to choose what extent bringing sun light into each apartment and to directly interact with the full façade itself.
The result is a residential building that constantly changes aspect during day and night, never being the same. Moreover shifting forward this system from the external walls has created a shared space at each level where the green living walls become the natural extension of the environment inside the building.
