The project concerns the development of an urban housing complex on a disused industrial site near a slum neighbourhood. The area is today characterized by unregulated and arbitrary constructions and poor living quality, but transcends a unique feeling of variety in facades, materials, colours and outdoor spaces. The main goal is to design a new urban environment containing both private housing and public uses, incorporating the distinctive identity of the surrounding neighbourhood and the industrial character of the wider area, so that it functions as an extension of the existing settlement and not as an “intrusion” in an already established urban landscape.
