A project by the Sostre Cívic cooperative, which was awarded the Poblenou plot in the first public tender for municipal land for cooperative housing on lease. The project seeks to expand the range of affordable housing to cope with the escalation of prices in recent years. The building aims to combat energy poverty by reducing the cost of housing comfort by more than 50%. A socio-economic diagnosis of the population group and a participatory process were made in which the user and the community play a leading role; and be the infrastructure that accompanies them and evolves freely from three social spheres: the neighborhood, the community, housing.
Relationship with the neighborhood
It is located at the corner of Espronceda and Camí antic streets in Valencia. It is a green axis full of facilities in the neighborhood. That is why it has the main access, all the communal spaces and the vertical circulations on the north façade, opening onto the public space of the Camí antic de València.
The building has 2 types of structure that optimize the functions of each material, cost, speed of construction. In contact with the land and the street, a reinforced concrete structure is proposed. For homes and community spaces, a laminated wood structure is proposed.
