The work included the prior preparation of the detailed engineering for block E-2.44 in La Gallega. In this sense, the current planning established a maximum of 27 homes. Because the maximum buildable area of the block exceeded that necessary for the subsidised housing programme’s requirements for housing units plus one subsidised commercial space, most of the ground floor became unused commercial space that can be changed to residential use in the future.
The building is distributed over two blocks. Each one is three storeys in height, but with different lengths. Their bay (11.85 m) is identical, and the blocks are separated by an inner courtyard garden block. In accordance with the programming dictated by the Canary Island Housing Institute, there are different types of houses ranging from one to four rooms, in addition to an adapted house. The houses are arranged longitudinally to the blocks in order to optimise the communications hubs and minimise costs.
The building sits on an exposed concrete base, featuring a markedly horizontal arrangement for its windows done in aluminium in the construction’s natural colour, filtering the views from the ground floors to the road through a garden that surrounds the building with a weathering steel fence.
