170 social houses in Sanchinarro
This housing block contains 170 social houses, built in the new urban expansion area of Madrid: Sanchinarro. The block is not entirely closed, it is open on the south side, where the lighter inner façade is visible. This way, the inner courtyard is related to the street. The houses are entered from the inner courtyard, and the façade here is more 'domestic', while the exterior refers to the urban scale of the surroundings. The block has a higher part on one side, to provide orientation and a recognisable landmark on one corner.
