Project Description

We wish to create an independent fragment of a city that reconstructs perceptive essences associated with an understanding of the Place itself. Empty 
spaces, squares, streets and courtyards are configured as basic elements in order to define our new “neighbourhood.” Due to the sharp slope of the plot the proposal is to amend the topography by means of terraces integrated into the geometric framework, with slopes of approximately 5 metres. The buildings adapt to the different slopes, adopting a pattern to seek better orientations. The buildings adapt to the topography, either supported or “floating”, focusing on the continuity of spaces, of visual relationships, orientation. The typology is based on a rational grid. The diversity in positioning the gaps, terraces, patios  and empty spaces in general seeks to establish internal spatial continuity, by establishing internal relationships between the dwellings and improving the performance and energy efficiency of the buildings.
