This building is based on a modular apartment unit where the furniture is arranged to allow free movements, creating a number of different scenarios or possibilities for the students. A terrace connects each unit to the outside. The linear circulation on the opposite side is limited by a green wall, and the resulting corridor becomes a place for social encounter. Due to an innovative bioclimatic design, the thinness of the building operates ideally by keeping heat in the winter and allowing a cross ventilation to cool the space during the summer, flipping sides randomly at different levels, and creating facades in which the typology of the terrace and the green wall interweave.
