The building consists of two volumes, one on the Ground Floor +10 that adjoins the rest of the volumes in the sector and faces Calle Garcilaso, and another on the Ground Floor +6 aligned with Berenguer de Palou street.

The volumetric organization of the building allows for maximum space inside the plot, giving rise to a communal area on the first floor that complements the green spaces inside the block. This gesture of the volumetry improves the sunlight of the houses facing the interior, moving them away from the high-rise blocks that face in the linear park of La Sagrera.

The houses are organized around a central axis, with houses on each side and terraces running throughout the entire building.

The façade adapts to two differentiated situations of the building: the façade on Carrer Berenguer de Palou is more solid and responds to a language more typical of existing streets, while the façade on Carrer Garcilaso is lighter. The façade is ventilated, finished with large-format porcelain stoneware pieces.

The building has been designed responding to parameters of sustainability and energy saving and has achieved an Energy Rating A.

Having quality outdoor spaces in our environment is essential. The building has large terraces and a communal garden area located on the roof of the building. These spaces contribute to improving the health of the people who live, the quality of the air and the biodiversity of our cities.
