The building is located in the town of Benicassim, just 5km from the coast, in front of a square, at an important crossroads. The function of the building is social housing, so the budget for the construction and materials was rather limited.The project addresses the geometry created by the chamfer corners, as prescribed by the town’s urban planning. The façades are generated by three large white pieces rising up from the ground, with large openings, finished in primary colours.This is a residential block with four floors above ground, plus a penthouse floor, with a flat roof, in line with the building type of this area of urban expansion. The building has two floors below ground for parking and storage. The ground floor contains an open-plan facility owned by the city. From the first to the third floor there are six apartments per floor, while there are four penthouse apartments with terraces on the fourth floor.The inner courtyard provides natural light to different rooms of the housing units. There is only one vertical communication core to maximize the housing area.The interior is characterized by simplicity and austerity, with functional but quality spaces. See more
