The project is located on the edge of an urban park.
The building is open to the landscape, allowing each apartment to enjoy the view and to have a privileged relationship with nature.
The particularity of the program resides in an atypical duplex with a double height exhibit space. This makes the duplex an authentic "house in the park" with its own garden. The concept for the apartments allows great freedom in the use of social spaces while keeping them separate from the bedrooms.
