It has been chosen to structure the basic uses (day centre and residence) by level, not volume, thereby minimizing the vertical displacement, providing internal privacy of the upper floors (1 st and 2 nd) and the relationship with the gardens and outdoor spaces, placing most of all the spaces of the day center on ground floor.

Outdoor spaces, articulated around the courtyard, are one of the essential aspects of this equipment. The main gardens, fundamentally linked to the residence, are developed on the covers of both volumes in the second and third floors, linked to facilitate continuous paths. These gardens overlook the patio and close to the street with thick vegetation and the extension of the lattice of the facade, seeking to isolate an ideal environment for an urban environment only relatively friendly.
