The city regulations make an intense effort in preserving this borough. Besides cataloguing main buildings, the local building code protects the character of the humble neighbourhood with small and fragmented dwellings, profusion of patios and similar facades that bring together a vibrant cohesion. The proposed volume responds to the scale of the historical district with dense blocks aligned along narrow streets and it´s interior composition based in small units in a continuous display, all splashed by patios. Each small house is unique in this area and that is one of the remarkable aspects of the project. A building designed from austerity to become an additional component in it’s block of random volumes, all different, all similar. The project tools are the simple rules that define the area, with the exception of the emphasis on the common space for the five dwellings.
