The allotments are on the edge of the new expansion area, apartment buildings to the east, single-family houses to the west as a prelude to the open space. This context calls for a transitional character; a transition between the city proposed by the expansion and the quasi-rural environment that was here until very recently. We propose a symbiosis between closed and open blocks, between high-rise apartments and low-rise house-and-garden developments, between green space and residential space.
A residential combination of apartment blocks and combination with extensive housing. A high-rise block with a typological diversity and flexible organization, and larger garden homes for bigger families.
A combination of sizes and types for different lifestyles in an environment where the vegetation and the outdoor spaces help to improve opportunities for personal interactions and also the users’ thermal and hygrometric comfort.
The typologies with minimum constraints and maximum adaptability are based on:
-Fixed-moveable ratio. Reduction of fixed elements to produce flexible, adaptable spaces.-More available space. Provision of flowing multipurpose spaces.-Double active skin. Translucent south wall to provide shelter and sunlighting for the interior. Double opaque, cross-ventilated skin on the W and N walls, with small windows to feed light inside while minimizing heat loss.-Dual orientation for summer ventilation and thermal regulation.-Double circulation to eliminates distribution spaces.
Energy is a project material. Passive solutions are implemented, based on insulation, thermal inertia, orientation and sunlighting, as well as centralized systems with solar support for heat production.
