Residences, parking, shops and public spaces
More than a buildings project, the University Residences are a pretext for an urban intervention, promoting the idea of neighborhood. Through it, we seek to change the dispersion of the University Campus, creating and consolidating public spaces – streets, squares and blocks -, connecting them to the city’s fabric.
At the same time, relationships are established with university buildings built in the 50s and 60s, through the appropriation of their grammars and the respective spatial models, which are the target of critical revisiting.
The functional program, consisting of student housing, commercial areas and a car park, is organized according to a hierarchical scheme that adapts to the natural slope of the land, establishing different levels that serve different functions.
