Designing over the pre-existence.
This project emphasizes the transformation of a warehouse into an apartment building. It constitutes an architectonic and economic viability study for the development of T1, T2 and T3 typologies.
Maintaining the original structure and volumetric shape, these apartments are defined by the use of secular self-supporting and prefabricated structures, permitting that the partitioning required shouldn’t corrupt the versatility of the space.
The structural metric lead us to create a standard module used for the definition of the spaces and redesigning of the building facades.
