To travel by train is synonymous of enjoying the scenery.
To both sides of our car the scenery unfolds endlessly, blending in with a
hypnotic horizontality.
Similarly, our proposal shows two sceneries, here the result of the inevitable
course of the sun.
On the one hand, facing north there is a system of passages that gives access to
the dwellings and works as an accoustic and light cushion, as well as privacy
protector. We get to provide the dwellings with privacy without renouncing light
by combining translucent and transparent glasses with vertical empty spaces in
front of the entries.
On the other, facing south, a combination of collecting galleries—high thermal
inertia panels and vertical empty spaces–offers a vibrating scenery that results
from the individual choices of typological adaptability.
