  The competition plot is located in an urban consolidated area surrounded by magnificent woodland and wide access´s avenues. The neutral existing edification is settled on staggered arrangement shaping a plaza closed by steep slopes, stairs and ramps.  
  Due to the height difference between the street and the plot platform, we propose a single block developed solving vehicles access (-1) from Ramón y Cajal street and ground floor pedestrian access from Nations Ave. where the commercial space is located too. The existing  gardened slope works as a plinth to reduce the building scale.  
  The building´s section fits on described topography locating two parking and storerooms basement levels, ground floor commercial and access uses, and four residential use floors.  
  The building design exhausts maximum building area  with mall studios, apartments and duplex accessed by a single vertical core and open galleries. This young housing design optimizes distribution areas and provides north woodland and east beautiful views.  
  These housing types are 35 sqm (one bedroom), 62 sqm (two bedrooms apartments) and 77 sqm (two bedrooms duplex) with variations to suit the geometrically complex plot.  
  Duplex are clustered in north facade, according to the street´s curved line. The studio is projected as a unitary but flexible space, depending on sliding doors´ positions.  
  In order to reconcile an open-plan space for parking in underground levels and no facility ducts inside houses, we design a transition structure, a slab supporting metal pillars integrated in the partitions. This constructive rationality draw facades as an structural skeleton which orders huge windows protected by exterior sliding louvres and roller blinds.
