Quarto and Penta harmoniously complete an already well-established urban layout.
The city is enriched by the diversity of architectural styles and periods, provided that a few urban arrangements ensure the seams necessary for overall coherence.
The progressive scale of the built heights in relation to the surrounding area, the density of the void, the unity of the ground floors and the continuity of the landscape that the two buildings manage to combine, ensure this unifying role while at the same time standing out for their iconic architecture.
Designed on a post-slab principle, the buildings are entirely reversible. All the homes have either through- or double-exposure living rooms.
Man's relationship with the plant world is essential, and choosing to live in a collective should not necessarily mean sacrificing a garden. The two buildings offer each flat one or two suspended "pocket gardens" that can be made their own.
Quarto and Penta are distinguished by the subtle design of their large terraces, ordered along the street and staggered at the heart of the block.
The buildings, with their simple geometry, are clad in cork: a durable material that provides insulation and cladding in a single layer.
