This building has 3 apartments looking onto the street as well as a 2-storey house at the back that has an interior patio. Due to the different needs of each client, the apartments have different floor plans. However the front space at the front is open, allowing it to become one single space, creating continuity with the exterior. There is a spectacular tree at the front of the building, which became an object of design for the interior, as well as for the façade. By working with structural geometry, we managed to support the 15m span with no columns that would obstruct the view to the exterior; we then sharpened the floor slabs and walls to the minimum, disappearing their edges in the façade.
