Regional studies and analysis on the typology and morphology of adjacent neighborhood in the new urban context, resulted in the production of two-dimensional graphics with no architectural value. Efforts have been devoted to exhibit the façade of this project as a sculptural mass made of enduring and authentic materials.
The rhythmic use of brick as a genuine and old material crafts a fascinating harmony, which through a combination of today’s aesthetics and forms results in a masterpiece with advanced technical details.
