The architecture is not limited at the time of design but ends in the realization of the work, and this occurs not before the screening of administrations and entities related to the building process. These reports, however, can not justify lack commitment design, nor the total submission to market demands: the whole process is always a social act shared, of which architecture is an expression.

The car benefits from a building in which were already planned underground parking and is on three levels above ground: eight apartments equally divided in the first two floors and one apartment with attic of relevance.
