Description Change this

The housing consist of 261 first class housing units of different types with the commercial ground floor. The two blocks have been projected around a single interior patio, which provides ventilation and illumination to the zone of service. This also create an interesting inner street environment for pedestrians. In all the blocks there is a very clear structural system of porticos parallel to facade. In commercial and parking plans every two pillars of housing are collected by one. This provides a very open structure with great advantages for parking and great flexibility for commercial and residential plants.
