The project for 100 dwellings for young people next to Parc Central Nou Barris is part of a new housing policy for the City of Barcelonameant to promote and make it easier for youths below 25th finding dwellings. The program consists of a group of smaller apartmentsaround 40 square meters, almost single person flats, with some shared services.
The project is carried out in a 16 storied tower lining the crossing of the Fabra i Puig and Passeig de Urrutia streets with the objective toshow minimum of facade towards the Parc Central thus offering views and routes for the pedestrians along the Passeig d´Urrutia.
The tower loses mass as it rises, terraces itself and shifts its material, making a transition from heavy to light and from brick wall to metal and fiberglass.
