The building is set in the historic centre of Madrid and reinterprets both the traditional housing typology of collective housing in the area and the way facades have been built in the architecture around the site. A common interior courtyard defines the layout of this programme of 22 small apartments for young people. This courtyard is conceived as an environment somewhere between private and public space and opens onto the square via a large entrance. It is a place for socialising which furthermore creates extensions to the dwelling units and favours social relations. Bike racks, the launderette and the community clothes lines are located here.
