42 Social Dwellings in Salburúa

Project | 2008 | Vitoria-Gasteiz | Residential | A housing block should be aligned along a long road while leaving behind it a large public space, shared with the other buildings of the lot. The proposal avoids turning the building into a linear border and liberates the ground through high crossed porches. Thus it produces a physical connection and a great transparency between the public spaces of the street and the big courtyard.
These connections also serve as places where residents can meet, walk and play, even during the frequent rainy days.
The dwelling, despite its reduced size and the numerous, complex and restrictive regulations, seeks to maximize the possibilities of uses and living.
All services are grouped into a central module which, besides simplifying the dimensions and use of the mechanical systems and the construction elements, it frees up a large area, well lit, ventilated, interconnected and extremely flexible.
The bedroom partitions can be removed without compromising the privacy or efficiency of the housing unit.
The exterior walls are covered by a continuous standard metal sheet. All the other elements, even the floors, are prefabricated. There are only two types of prefabricated windows for the whole building.
