The site for these 18 subsidized housing units lies between a block of row housing and a series of single-family homes. Despite being low-rise, the former constitutes a forceful urban element that occupies the territory in which it is set. The latter, smaller in size, have breathing space on plots with extensive vegetation. The planned dwellings must, then, address the transition between these two typologies, as well as exploiting the conditions of their own site. The plot follows a slight gradient, sloping from the street inwards and extending lengthwise to the south-west. As well as offering the best sunlight conditions, this direction also, at present, commands the best views of the coastal mountain range. These conditions call for a building that extends lengthways but also allows the dwellings to face south rather than directly overlooking the neighbouring buildings.
