Es pati des retir. The competition program was divided into two interrelated parts: a day care center for older people and a residence. One of the priorities of the proposal has been respecting the existing buildings, of which not only the rehabilitation is proposed, but also the preservation of the dwellings typology, an element that is part of the resident's memory and the way of living of Camp Redó district. Respect for the rationalist nature of the neighborhood and the existing buildings has brought us to propose a facade that keeps the socket on the ground floor lightening and drilling it and recovers the dimensions of the existing openings in upper floors, varying the rate of the original project. The decision to maintain the existing typology, two apartments per floor, instead of other solutions with a vertical protected access and long access corridor -do not allow cross ventilation-.
