New ways of living: Four couples, who are also friends, unite with the common project of constructing a building with five apartments and communal spaces. The entrance patio –like an open vestibule- and the rooftop swimming pool invite the residents to take part in activities together. The combination of materials: wood, brick and concrete offer texture, tone and warmth to different areas. The system of folding and adjustable wooden shutters enclose the terraces and control the sunlight, contribute to improving the thermal comfort of the building as well as generating a dynamic play of solids and voids on the end facades. The building, which has an A energy rating, also incorporates other passive systems into its design, as well as a renewable energy system that greatly reduces its energy consumption.
