At the beginning of its construction the project suffered a program modification, the client decided to change the original plan from one apartment per floor to two units per floor. This modification resulted in an unexpected plan configuration.

At ground floor all pedestrian and vehicular access is solved in a double height entrance that allows a fluid relationship with the public street.

The parking is cover by a green roof that improves views form the back apartments offering a small garden of native plants.

A pallet of monochromatic materials gives visual unity to the whole structure, although with differentiated textures.

The front façade, facing the river and good orientation affords a formal appearance, affords a deep balcony as expansion of the interiors and solar protection. The back façade, facing the city and the bad orientation, was formalized with a more domestic and casual image that connects it to its neighbors.
