    Abstract:

    The volumes were pre-fixed by the urban regulations. The project consists in a single volume that occupies the entire block, with two floors for retail that act as a basement. The perimeter of the pedestal is open, glass, commercial…. over this pedestal three blocks arise, two for residential use and one for offices. The office building blends into the basement in his encounter with the same skin, trying to unify the image and use from horizontal to vertical. In contrast, the blocks of flats try to differentiate from the rest by shifting, changing its cladding and breaking its volumes in the middle of its height, distinguishing the part that is higher than average housing buildings.
