The building is composed of prefabricated modules that combine to form a compact volume. It consists of 12 accommodations, 8 individual and 4 double modules. All the accommodations have ventilation throughout. In this case, facing northeast and southeast, allows for cross ventilation, while promoting solar uptake in cold seasons. Around this compact volume, a polycarbonate façade is projected to respond to the alignments of the plot. This double skin serves as a separation between the external environment and the containers, providing a greenhouse effect, with climatic and spatial advantages. The nucleus of circulation is strategically placed in the dividing wall, solving the conflict with the neighboring building and guaranteeing access to all homes through walkways, with an adequate dimension to allow for other uses besides circulation. The ground floor is reserved for communal uses and services to the neighborhood. An open, transparent space is projected with direct access to the square, that allows for different uses.
