Villaverde Social Housing

contributed by Jose_Garcia

This project is located in a new development area in the Villaverde district of southern Madrid. Comprised of 176 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, it responds to an overall masterplan for the site which requested a single U-shaped block of eight storeys high and which has the appearance of a pitched roof. Within the confines of this brief, the design attempted to manipulate these architectural restrictions so as to abstract the normative idea of an apartment block. So whereas other neighbouring buildings adopt a symmetrical, double-pitched silhouette, here the traditional relationships of wall and roof are abstracted into a low, single pitch for the bulk of the block, and a small secondary pitch at the building´s front edge. The materials chosen are earthy-pink concrete for the façade panels and slate-blue concrete for the courtyard portico. A dense band of landscaping is located in between, to reach the effect of a rich panel of colours radiating outwards.

¿ Porqué solo se muestra la imagen ?
Si son viviendas sociales me gustaria saber que aporta el arquitecto para este tipo de actuación, siempre la información gráfica se limita a la banalidad de la imagen.
