In a large corner lot in a high-density residential context, we proposed a strategy using two key elements: the inside patio and the buildings on the perimeter. We generated a curtain wall for noise protection, solar control and privacy for the courtyard’s residents. The facades predominantly exposed to the sun have terraces that cast shadows and allow an expansion zone for each home. The ground floor is composed of houses with private gardens, except on the corner where we proposed a commercial space to give continuity to the urban surroundings.
