It is a residential neighbourhood of new creation with parallel buildings that define an inner street. We want to do of it the “motive” of the project. For that we force a scheme of the access to the houses through this area, qualifying it and generating in this way activity and relation. The need of composing the block looking for a unity with the building adjacent, force us to an effort of simplicity and clarity, that at least at the outer fronts has to be substantial.
These fronts are executed on the basis of a unique kind of hollow, drawn on a very uniform surface of sheet of aluminium anodized. The composition is repeated along the whole exterior perimeter of the action. The inner street wants to be different. It is staggered slightly a floor with regard to the low one so that the front turns into a succession of lines curved (edges) that accentuate the tracing. The vision absconded from the space inclines us to look for one “not composition” with hollows placed in a random way and with quoins lined with fenolic panels of varied colours that introduce a vibration and characterize firmly the space. In the difference between these two composition worlds, turns the argument of the project.
