The property destined for this building is adjacent to two large buildings in a ravine, adding an element of complexity that is solved by creating six vertical homes, using only 50% of the area and leaving a large green area. Conceptually, the tracing of the architectural plans started with a semicircular ventilation patio that coincides with the adjacent building's patio so as to take share and take advantage of the light. The central volume was rotated 45 degrees from the centre of the circle and, as a consequence, the space that houses the imposing 6-meter high room was liberated. This allows us to have three transparent façades with carefully placed panels that block the view from the adjacent areas while instilling a sense of freedom and luminosity inside. They used raw concrete, in its natural state of traditional formwork, as the main material.In the main façade they generated a sober pictorial image, using panels that light up when the area is turned on.
