This housing complex is distinguished by the striking exterior, dimintaed by the white-coloured balconies that angle in and out to form a crystalline appearance.

The balcony angle articulation creates spaces enriched by contrasts of light and shade, exposure and protection, emphasized by the contrast between the white cast-in-place concrete and the dark Glass Reinforced Concrete. The geometric and material principle of the facades continues trough the external areas, creating landscaped spaces for playing, strolling and relaxing.

The controlled sun exposure, the thermal inertia of the facade, the use of alternative energy and electrically efficient appliances, are features that integrate the building in a quality standard of respect for the Individual and their Habitat.
