Arquitectura y Sentido

Project for a residential building with a shop on the ground floor and 3 above-ground floors. The building is shown as a petrous and uniform element which does not interact much with its environment. The main façade and the party wall are treated in the same way, thereby completing its solid expression. The openings have sliding doors with the same finish that facilitate expression changes of the façade lightening its rigid position, and allowing multiple readings. That's when its expression gains versatility and the façade responds to the changing needs of its users.
