The main challenge of this project was the narrow slope of the site and the poor soil quality, difficult for foundation.
In addition, the site was situated in the historically protected area of the city, therefore, we had to take in consideration many urban restrictions that resulted into several versions of the project.
In the end, the concept of the building was generated in the plan, by designing two volumes articulated through the staircase and, also, in the section, in which we shifted the plans by half a level between the two volumes of the building.
