Like the other residential buildings which are located on the south facade, the volumes in this project were meant to follow the point-block pattern: two parts, each one with a large circulation core at the centre. However, Brenac & Gonzalez chose to decrease the size of the cores, to preserve an 8-m deep bay for all the dwellings and to occupy the void between buildings. They connect the initial point-blocks between first and fifth floors using two Siamese twin-type dwellings which occupy the centre, creating two voids to the north and to the south.
