Project 2009
The project consists of 20 apartments. The building is a response to two volumetric situations. The first one is the vertical axis, in which the building is divided in two to improve the impact on the pedestrian scale. The second is the horizontal axis, where the flowerbeds, with their distinct materials, break the main volume in two, making it look like two apartment buildings interwined with each other. Entry to the building is located on the street corner, thus integrating the building to the public space.
