The project combines the preexistences and the urban development conditions, to interact with the users’ way of life. 

City. Interaction architecture – surroundings. 

On the one hand, we try to give a response to the complex surroundings by raising a building with an own geometry. A volume with different heights that takes the most advantage of solar orientation and ventilation where the game between emptinesses, hollows and interior court gets the maximum use of the space.

The only central core leads to all the housings. The use of exterior covered gangplanks facilitates the crossed ventilation and the facades’ liberation, and also leads to the use of an exterior dynamic skin where the principal areas are located. Thanks to its spiral form the differents housings are allowed to have free exterior spaces such as terraces and gardens.

Way of life. Interaction architecture – user

In the Mediterranean culture the transition between the public and the private spaces,  has always been understood as something sequential, where the intermediate spaces like the interior courts or the covered streets, the porches or the pergolas, have a very important role as spaces where people interact.

With this intention the building access is promoted from both streets generating a traffic between them and giving to the interior court the aptitude to stir the social life into action between the neighbors.

Economy and sustainability taking the most advantage of the passive systems, but also promoting the social values and comfort typical of our architecture.
