This project contemplates the construction of two eleven-story residential towers that, in both cases, are proposed as higher-rise buildings that complete and punctuate the linear blocks that define the general structure of the urban planning and formalize the public space comprised between Cooperativa St. and Amadeo Torner St.
However, while the first tower, located at the north end of the plot, moves to show itself as an autonomous and exempt volume, the second is an extension that tops the lower body and shares with it the dividing wall corresponding to the first six floors. In both cases, the towers tend to offer a slender and fragmented image, formed by the articulation of four independent prisms, compact and of variable height, thanks to the division of the plant into quadrants, the manipulation of the section and the fissures caused by the stairs.
