The project aims to offer an attractive urban proposal farther than the mere accumulation of residential units. The decision to divide the volume in four towers around a public raised space that works as a cover for the entrances and commercials in the public ground space turns the building into an urban visible joint that connects different areas in the city.

The low square is connected to the high public space by an elevator and a hung metallic stair. The high plaza, elevated ten meters, communicates the four towers and separates the diverse uses, becoming definitely the heart of the project.  As a meeting point space, it assumes its condition, once equipped, as sensitive leisure place for collective socialization, changing into an open community new service for the city.
