Residential complex of 85 residences with store rooms, swimming pools, garages and stores, its unusual feature being the organisation of the building and the composition of the façades. The idea of the project is to break with the closed block and with the image of repetition that this kind of building often has Different groupings break the horizontal alignment of the façades. A smooth white skin of porcelain tiles with large gaps, covers the sets of volumes which give way to large terraces of black basalt. The development of the large communal public area organises the spaces into different zones, which weave hard materials with green areas, sun and shade.
