In an attempt to increase the urban quality of the proposal and to break with the enclosing nature of the closed block typology, our proposal offers a complex volume with a strong urban content on the street level and diverse-scale stacks in the upper levels, avoiding the monotony of the common residential complex. Our proposal aims to carry out a deep revision of the ‘riad’ typology, making the concept of the permeable wall with its hidden Andalusian gardens and its concealed transversal views the project’s leitmotiv, connecting every single apartment to the city. Not surprisingly, the concept of the ‘riad’ works at its best when patios, roofs, streets and gardens are related to one-another, transforming the built mass into a kind of urban landscape of great tectonic content.
