One of the earliest decisions was to override the corner alignment and withdraw the fašade, to enable the new building to adapt to existing construction. Another decision was to give the fašade a personality of its own, making the building a new reference in these colourless surroundings. The new volume comprises a unitary ground floor for shops with two floors of dwellings. The bedrooms in all the apartments overlook the inner courtyard, and the living rooms and kitchens look onto the street, as all the services and vertical communication shafts are concentrated in the block's lengthwise central strip. Each floor houses six apartments with three vertical communication shafts. To enlarge the living room, it is combined with a semi-open kitchen. The communal area for hanging out washing is located on the flat roof, conserving Barcelona's Mediterranean tradition: the collective use of terrace roofs. All the rooftop volumes are dark to emphasise the strip of dwellings in fašade.
