The building in study shows a slightly triangular shape and confronts at North with the north-south Axis, at East with Padre Cruz Avenue and at South / West with some existing buildings within the limits of the lot.
Of the 11 floors planned, 2 are completely buried (floors -3 and -2) and another only partially (Floor -1), while above ground the building is divided into two separate bodies (North and South Towers) joined to the level Floor 0 by a large exterior area, and for which its foreseen another seven floors (floors 1 to 7) and a roof floor.
The challenge in this design was to find simple solutions, efficient, reliable and low maintenance requirements, which, however, meet the demands created by the functionality of the building in order to establish the conditions for the spaces, but also the quality and comfort of the interior.
