In a corner site with a peculiar plan, a 5-storey apartment block is created. It accommodates 6 different typologies,
reflected to the building's morphology. The strong geometric volumes accentuate the corner of the city block. Big,
free hanging balconies of exposed concrete accessed from the living rooms and kitchens, offer the possibility for outdoor
life to the inhabitants. The bedrooms are located in the rear of the building for privacy and protection from the noise.
The green striking color of the last floor's cube-structure provides the area with a landmark, while offering a sense of
identity to the inhabitants.
