Residences, commerce and public spaces
The building is located on an anonymous lot, located in an expanding area of the city that, because of that, is undergoing a process of profound transformation. We propose a structure based on the combination of modules corresponding to the various typologies – single rooms, double rooms, apartments – which overlap in a half-floor system, from which the building’s shape is derived.
The project is based on the creation and systematization of prefabricated elements, built in a workshop, later assembled on site. The characterization of the building derives from the construction process: the grammary and atmosphere of each space is determined by the presence of laminated wood, used in structural elements – beams, pillars and slabs –, in finishings – walls, floors and ceilings – and in facades.
In this way, a high comfort and environmental performance is guaranteed, reducing the strict budget and time limits of the work.
