The building can accommodate 80 students and has a total surface of closed spaces of approximately 3,000 m². The complex is developed between two parallel walls, in the form of arcs, which contain the living quarters and circulation spaces.
The north-western wall delimits the communal spaces zone of the building, and the south-western one the private rooms. The mass of the two walls follows the ground configuration and is painted in earth-brown colour. Most rooms are organized in groups of five to six, in two-floor buildings arrangement. Rooms on the second level are accessible only through the interior staircase.
Thus, there are external entrances to each two-storey unit only on the first and third levels. Each room has its own bathroom and balcony, which assures each tenant’s greatest privacy, while each unit is serviced by a communal living-room / kitchen with a TV corner on the second level.
