The Project of 4 floors propose 18 duplex units facing the street and 4 interior apartments of one level.
The outer housing is a combination of two characteristic typologies of the neighbourhood.
In the first 2 levels, a number of houses with individual entrances from the street is proposed. The ground floor is raised middle level on the sidewalk to provide privacy and play with its relationship with the pedestrian and street.
On top of these houses duplex apartments inspired in the concept of open elevated Street, typical of the neighbourhood of the early twentieth century.
