The proposal is to develop sixty student housing, of which fifteen must be shared housing with an elder person.
This residential project is a chance for a research of the needs that this collective will have and what accommodation demands on a dwelling.
The project generates a coexistence model (generational and intergenerational) that grows from the dwelling to the urban contest.
The building achieve this purpose fitting in a very particular urban contest, generating a balance in the area.
To achieve the coexistence model, the common spaces are the ones who organizes the project.
