750 micro-sized homes with communal facilities and running track in a reconverted industrial area.
This big development works inside the current overlap, common to many new peripheral residential enclaves, between the demands for low-cost micro-sized homes for a presumably transient population, their viability in post-industrial lots and the supplemented of a tight packaging of units with the provision of different programmatic facilities. Indoor and outdoor swimming pools, gym, coworking areas, collective kitchens or an outdoor 500m. running track which recoils around the complex’s garden, aimed towards the encouragement of a certain communal sense of living in a collective of young dwellers.
A strict exercise in structural modulation, typological and constructive repetition and selective prefabrication of certain components (mainly complete bathroom units, structural elements and concrete facade modules), the project takes advantage of increasingly industrial standards in design and site-management whilst retaining a domestic scale and pedestrian patterns, counterbalancing its presence in a harsh context.
