The project "Black & White Twins" experiments with the spatial and visual integration of compact collective housing solutions in the new exclusive urban development of Blaricummermeent, which is mainly formed by single-family houses and villas. The twin buildings provide affordable apartments within small-scale housing blocks, four levels high, minimizing the footprint of the intervention, the volume of the buildings and therefore their physical impact in the residential area. Black & White The twin apartment blocks are conceptually divided into two parts: an outer black skin perforated with windows and voids that wraps the inner part of the building and the open air spaces coloured in white. The chromatic contrast between the two parts emphasizes the conceptual autonomy of the skin of the building, which from outside works as the architectural device in charge of integrating visually the building in the scale of its urban context.
