24 Social Housing Block
Competition. First prize
The building is located in a neighbourhood in the outskirts of Santurtzi, in a predominantly industrial area which is currently being transformed, on a plot sharply sloping toward the Bilbao estuary.
Given the predominant NW-SE longitudinal orientation of the plot and its 12.10m bay, the homes have a double orientation, choosing NE for the bedrooms, providing sun early in the morning, and SW for living rooms and kitchens. The design of the façade and airwells provides an optimal bioclimatic behaviour.
