The project is based on modelling the maximum building envelope -a traditional closed seven-storey block- set out in the strict building regulations. The proposal breaks with convention and distributes the dwelling units on a new volume of variable height (between three and seven storeys). This way various voids and cut-outs are created allowing views of the mountains and the scenery while letting light and fresh air in.
On the other side, the block opens onto the street at two corners, connecting the interior space, which they have tried to give a rural ambience, to life in the city. Opposite the forgotten rear space, here a secluded square is the hub of residents’ social relations.
