The project includes 80 apartments -40 per tower- on a 22 x 22 m square floor plan, around a central void that allows the built surface to be brought to the façade, providing a space for community relations. On the ground floor, the apartments are surrounded by a private garden and a large porch.
In its growth towards the southeast, the city of Madrid has colonized theempty space between Vicálvaro and Coslada with clear geometries and aconventional layout on which the buildings are arranged as small towers arounda central park.
Almost twin towers
In this context, the project is conceived as two almost twin buildings,following the spirit of the masterplan, but seeking to create a unitary complexthat offers a new face to the neighborhood. The two volumes are similar, butthey present slight differences, so that each one maintains its ownpersonality. We take advantage of the fact that the complex completes the frontof the plot and we propose a canopy as a horizontal belt that joins bothbuildings and organizes the access to the buildings.
A central garden
The horizontal canopy provides a unique character, increases the spaceavailable for common areas, and generates a sequence of large porches andterraces on the ground, first and second floors. The large canopy hosts ameadow with large trees inside. Underneath, a covered perimeter walk joins theportals of both buildings; a space that provides shelter on rainy days andprotected access from the street entrance.
