This housing project is located in the area of Can Colomer and leaning on the road that goes to Terrassa from Rellinars. It develops the provisions of planning, a building in “L” with two substantially different parts in length and depth to determine the typological options for each case. The shallower arm, with facades facing North and South is resolved with double orientation units. The perpendicular volume to East and West has dwellings on each side with access and ventilation through a longitudinal corridor courtyard.
The fragmented arrangement of terraces of the elevations lightens the massive character of the set while noting the individual condition of each housing. The north facade contains community galleries built with a partial enclosure that combines different filters, textures and colors and determines the most characteristic and public image of the set.
