The Mirador building by MVRDV & Blanca Lleó contains an extensive patchwork of situations and dwelling types in order to lodge the contemporary diversity and individuality. It’s about integrating different lifestyles. The large lookout point gives a privileged public space and also a global identity.
TWO SUPERIMPOSED STAIRCASES

The two staircases are connected on all levels via the lift lobby or the shared terraces.
