The building is located in a block of a new growth area of Torelló. A concrete base resolves the horizontal positioning of the set and provides the necessary privacy between the street and the houses.
The program is developed over 4 floors with 9 apartments per level. Very strict urban and regulatory parameters are organized with few typological variables. A central corridor access distributes the apartments, most of them facing the street to the south and the others facing east, west and the block courtyard. Indoors, the apartment is organized in two areas: social area and sitting area, linked by an entrance hall.
The building process combines the construction of reinforced concrete foundations and containment walls with a modular and industrialized system for the rest of floors which were made in a workshop to join then and to complete at the site.
