Build a building between its long facade in the depth direction of the plot, forced to squint into the street and facing the neighbor; to overcome these drawbacks of perception have implemented the following tactics:

– The perimeter wall of each house is treated as thickness of light, and thus lives in light and not between party thicknesses which in turn sift the perception of them.Parque Virginia Residences

– In turn, the building is mainstreamed by the light thickened as a vertical inner courtyard, reaffirming the individuality of each house and the notion of “living at home” instead of “apartment living” and overcoming the traditional notion to live in a row, which has the separation wall as protagonist.

– The street outside has become inner side garden, to which projected the building, in its multiple expressions eyes open: balcony, terrace, glazed corners, etc. The street was introduced in the plot and animates multiple views.

– The landscape mainstreaming concept works: in the street outside, landscaping perpendicular thereto, seeks to contain the street and bring the edges to reinforce the perception of being “through”: the building is felt on the street so friendly, receiver; in the plot, landscaping develops perpendicular to the building and “up” by the dividing walls of the plot; this mainstreaming pursues both expansion of domestic space as his intimate containment.
