For this assignment I was asked to design a collective housing project for over 700 families. Placed in a new urban area near Vallecas (south of Madrid), this project takes as inspiration the well-known Gifu Kitagata Apartments designed by SANAA. I also tried to to re-elaborate the perimeter block type, so widely used in Spain since the first contemporary developments in the 19th century. The footprint of the buildings was algorithmically generated under preset parameters, starting with a pseudo-random hexagrid and repositioning the tiles through an attractor field. The apartment’s plan also takes the SANAA project as example, in this case focusing over spatial versatility vs. typological diversity. Every apartment consists of two well defined areas: one is next to the corridor, and therefore to the entrance, containing the kitchen, the bathrooms and the servant space; while the other area is a simple rectangle divided into three equal, undefined rooms. The adjacency diagram is such that one of this spaces, while being equal two the other two, can easily be integrated into the other package in order to satisfy different necessities.
