Vallecas Residential Units

Vallecas Residential Units

Client: Empresa Municipal de Viviendas
Location: Vallecas, Madrid, España (Spain)
Size: 12.000 m2

The shape of the site permitted the creation of two residential types: one developed horizontally and the other vertically. The first is an apartment block which utilises the open space of the patio as common external corridors in the form of a cascade acting as the access to the residences from the main staircase.

The second solution is residential units on two levels whose facade, as in the first instance, is layered with porches and terraces.

The key to this project was to interrelate and enrich the external space belonging to its residents which is protected by the buildings, with the more private entrance porches and terraces, creating more neighbourly spaces.
