The urban implementation of the building has a higher front (GF+5) and a volume of GF + 2. The apartments are distributed in 4 per each vertical core, with the issues and solutions that the diverse orientations force to solve.
The project has reinforced the requirements of setbacks and overhangs allowed by the urban planning, in order to singularize the tower and fragment the facades, through a volumetric design that adapts to the slope of the streets where it is located.
The proposal suggests 69 dwellings in 3 typologies. On the ground floor there are 15 apartments with direct access from the street and a garden facing the interior common area. On the standard floors, 40 dwellings are distributed with crossed ventilation in the living area through their ample balconies; the balconies are the backbone of the connection between the interior spaces. On the top floors, 14 duplex homes are developed, with their balconies and rooftop terraces.
As requested by the developer, the highest percentage of three-bedroom apartments has been proposed.
The built complex shares a common garden area with a swimming pool.
Constructively we have adapted to the requirements established by the developer. We can highlight the construction systems of facade, roofs, structure of the attics and prefabrication of the stairs.
The exterior façade is a prefabricated and ventilated façade with an interior load-bearing sheet of concrete panels and an exterior sheet of fibrocement slats in a booklet. The concrete panel towards the interior, in addition to its strictly structural properties, has a thermal inertia function.
The interior facades are composed of lightweight sandwich panels made from micro-ribbed steel, the thermal behaviour of which is strictly opposite to that of the apartments facing the street. In this sense, the lightness of the system makes it necessary to provide it with waterproofness and maximum insulation.
The roofs are flat and accessible for the use of the duplex dwellings on the upper floors. The building has placed new industrialized insulated pavement for inverted roofs, designed in collaboration with a local flooring industry. The development of the piece has taken into account the importance of rapid installation, stability to movement and the very resistance of the pressed concrete.
The structure and enclosure of the upper floor of the duplexes is a lightweight metal structure, covered with corrugated sheet metal and a lightweight sandwich panel facade.
The large number of staircases led to their prefabrication to improve their quality, eliminate flooring and speed up execution.
The constructive solutions and thermal isolation foreseen, a building of low energy demand and without thermal bridges is assured. The energy certification will be an A and the BREEAM environmental seal "very good" is to be obtained. The proposed industrialized solutions reduce the loss of material and creation of waste.
The work has been developed from an understanding of project and work, with the objective of finding the solution that can provide the best quality and cost relationship.
