Appreciations towards DF Arquitectos for providing the following description:


The main objective was to design a building that, due to its current configuration, works within the dynamics of the city. We seek to intervene in a neighborhood that has survived time. Cova 07 is a contemporary proposal regarding its use; in the formal part, it uses current materials with a total respect for space. At the same time it is discreet; We do not try to make the neighborhood and the user interpret it as a massive intervention or to deteriorate the essence of the building. It is a very well studied balance.

We propose a building of 14 houses, all with spaces integrated into the context, taking advantage of natural lighting to reach all interior spaces, the use of warm finishes, with a mixture of apparent materials, makes a pleasant space to inhabit. Between trees of the roads, interior patios, light cubes, exterior circulations, make this project unique in the area, due to the size of the houses and the services it also offers, a business center, a gym, terraces and a multiple uses on the ground floor, in a dynamic way connected to each other. The integration with the environment was sought with planters on the façade that would give continuity to the ash and jacaranda trees that inhabit the pedestrian thoroughfare, the views from the inside are green at all times.

建筑立面将为San Rafael街区提供新的成长方向。它尊重楼层的水平特征,利用结构和装饰元素在保证私密性的同时实现立面的通透。建筑从沿街面、背面,到中心庭院立面均设有巨大的玻璃窗,满足采光和通风的需求。

The aim was to achieve a façade that would determine the new growth of the San Rafael neighborhood, respecting the horizontality of the mezzanines, taking advantage of some structural and other ornamental elements, giving some privacy to the interior spaces but also achieving a very transparent facade in terms of lighting and ventilation with large windows on the 4 facades of the building, the main one, the rear one and those in the central courtyard.
