The competition brief asked for a residential blocks of very high density . To comply with the requirements, the building would need to be 10 storey high on average and relatively close to one another.
In order to enable satisfactory natural lighting levels in all apartments, constant solar access and exposure simulations and analyses were carried out. The blocks are designed relative to solar access to the most critical segments, lower floors of the inside of the block. Final design manages to respect the required number of apartments, while each of them receives at least 2 hours of sun light a day.
