In this construction there are two fundamental concepts :
the tall building in the green and the building and street-link
neighborhood social relations, movement of vehicles in completely
excluded from the area of design.
an attempt to realize the concept of "streets in the sky" with
the long corridors in height made within concrete blocks.
The idea was to build two huge concrete blocks flanking a central
green area of the landfill obtained from the rubble of the work.
The residential complex that occupies about two hectares, consists of
two long blocks containers facing each other, at whose head sits the
busiest route, thereby exerting an effect buildings barrier that protects
the large interior space the land where they were built is exposed to
traffic on three sides
Departments in the bedrooms and kitchens and dining are into the green,
away from the noise, leaving the access gateways and living rooms on the
side closest to the street noise.
Every three floors are wide open balconies were designed with the idea
of serving to children's play and neighborhood meetings.
A large green, protected from the bustle outside, where children can
play and can be performed outdoors.
