Olalquiaga Arquitectos as Architects

The project consists of three isolated buildings, each having three dwellings. The geometry and volumetry of the designed ensemble are based on the urbanistic regulations of the area. The vehicle access to the parking is made from the José Fentanes noº10 street. The parking area is the size of the footprint of the buildings and the existing area between them. The entrance for the pedestrians on the ground floor is made from Alfonso Fdez. Clausells street.
