Residential Building

The fundamental challenge for the architects was to adapt the residence to the uneven site terrain and create a space for parking, outdoor activities, and recreational/outdoor gardens to coexist.

The problem was settled by imagining a creative form to encase the lot with 2 floors at the basement level for parking, meetings and recreation and another 2 floor as semi public and private zones at the street level.

The choice of materials for the facade exterior surfaces is intriguing: The use of limestone claddings surface to enhance the building aesthetically and to adequately give required insulation to the building envelope is a worthwhile experience.
