Located on an avenue in the geographic center of the city, the project rests on a commercial foundation. Although the urban code allows the construction of buildings of up to 12 floors, the order arises from the desire to maintain the existing plinth and place the structure dry on it. A “carpet” fabric is then proposed that forms 4 homes extended along the entire lot. It is accessed through a common and open corridor with entrances that provoke the volumes of homes and encourage meetings between inhabitants. Each of these has patios and terraces that intersect in height to generate different situations and visuals.
