El edificio se compone por tres departamentos al frente con vista a una calle con grandes árboles, y un dúplex en la parte posterior que da a un patio interior. La fachada procura desmaterializarse para crear una conexión fuerte del exterior con el interior. Mediante un trabajo de geometría estructural se evitan columnas y se adelgaza la losa hacia la fachada, hasta llegar a un espesor mínimo.
This building is composed of three apartments on the front side, looking out on a street with large trees, and a duplex in the back which connects to an interior courtyard. The facade seems to dematerialize and thus creates a strong connection between surroundings and interior. Using structural geometry we avoided pillars and the roof slate becomes thinner towards the facade until it reaches a minimum thickness.
This building has 3 apartments looking unto the street as well as a 2 stories house in the back that lives to an interior patio. Due to the different needs of each client, the apartments have different floor plans. However the public are concentrates in the front, allowing it to become one single space, creating continuity with the exterior. There is a spectacular tree in front of the building, which became an object of design for the interior, as well as for the façade. By working with structural geometry, we managed to support the 15mt span with no columns that would obstruct the view to the exterior; we then sharpened the floor slabs and walls to the minimum, disappearing their edges in the façade.
