Building for 21 Houses

Roman y Canivell as Architects

The plot is located geographically in the city of Seville, in the perimeter of its historic center and more specifically in its eastern sector, between the Jardines de Murillo and the neighborhood of San Bernardo. The façade on Rastro Street has a northeast orientation.

The urban environment in which we find ourselves is typical of the historic center of Seville, with three-storey houses in their majority and old buildings except for some specific cases. In front of the plot is the seat of the Provincial Council of Seville.

It is proposed a building between party walls with a current design but according to the buildings nearby and characteristic of the area. One of the premises is to "integrate" a contemporary architecture with that of a consolidated historical set.

It is a multi-family building with garages and storage rooms. It consists of ground floor, first, second and tower, in which are distributed 21 homes of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms, which are distributed around a large central courtyard that is shaped as the main protagonist of the project.

It must be borne in mind that most of the houses are interior, which is why we understood that the design of this main patio had to be treated with the importance of an exterior façade.

To achieve adequate ventilation and sufficient lighting we have a series of patios of lights that are attached to medians and distributed throughout the perimeter of the site, these patios contribute along with the main to provide cross ventilation to the entire promotion.

There are two nuclei of vertical communication and the distribution is made through galleries in some houses, and common areas closed in others.

It also has two floors below ground for use in garages and storage rooms. A small communal pool is placed in the castillete plant.
