Celosia Building

by MVRDV + Blanca Lleó

This apartment building is located in the PAU (Urban Development Project) of Sanchinarro, a new neighborhood situated on the northeast edge of Madrid, next to MVRDV’s Mirador. Blocks of eight houses are seen as separate prefabricated units. They are positioned in a checkerboard pattern next to and on top of each other leaving openings for communal gardens in between. The light and ventilation these also provide are in contrast to the claustrophobic conditions of other developments in the area. (source: MVRDV’s website)
