A 998 m2 mixed-use building entirely made out of reinforced concrete prefabricated panels, slabs and rings, forming a "floating" table-like base (covering and accommodating a multi-services, open-space), crowned by six tube-like boxes (small housing units).
All of these elements perform at once as structure, insulation and finishing. Each one contains a thermal insulation layer and spares any additional cladding, exposing the structural concrete as the apparent and predominant material.
The whole concept and building processes, from the pieces' production under strict planning, to their quick assembly on site, aimed to achieve time and physical resources optimization, configuring an effective answer to the contemporary need for immediacy and economy of means.
