This Project is located on a residential neighborhood on the east side of the city, formed by 7 stories tall adjacent buildings. On this specific site, we had a 7 stories tall blind wall of a building to the east, and isolation was required by regulation to the west side, overlooking the mountains, next to a school. Given that, the building is adjacent to the building to the east, with a perforated wall over the street, which contains the double height of the apartments. Over the west side, the project opens with large windows.

Given that, apartments have an open plan, with service pipelines on the back that allow for the maximum flexibility to let each module to be treated as a complete autonomous element.
