Prior to the intervention this was an urban void, simply an unfinished piece of city in an urban surrounding inhabited mostly by workers from Andalucía and Extremadura. Even though that the residential buildings in this neighborhood present a very modest architecture, they sometimes have colorful façades. It seemed important for us then to preserve this feature and take the opportunity to remodel a small urban space next to the new building through the resource which the residents of the community have always used: the color. One of the main challenges of the project was the integration between the façade and the public space, and to provide the space for a new use. Hence the flexible pavement and the large commercial premise on the ground floor of the new building. The building is conceived as a large facade in the same colour as the pavement of the square. Thus, the facade becomes a vertical extension of the square. Whilst the square became a horizontal extension of the facade.
