What if the defensive protection against noise could be simply washed away and forgotten through an offensive program of consistent orientation to multiple solutions and high porosity?
For this square plot, the idea was to create a development with around 150 subsidized apartments and retail spaces on a reduced scale. The location in a heterogeneous peripherial area gave rise to the question of how an island-like identity could be formed—lending the housing a characteristic interior space and delimiting it from the outside, while still communicating a sense of openness.

The blocks are staggered and their heights nuanced in such a way that most of the apartments open up toward the corners, thus enjoying a clear panoramic view.
