At laBoqueria Taller we are developing the project for the youth housing building in Cabrils. We based its design on a matrix of connecting rooms that eliminates corridors to ensure maximum use of the floor. The main axes of this building are the use of materials in favor of the possibilities of industrialization, the improvement of the quality of the construction and the notable reduction of execution times, as well as C02 emissions.
There are 20 spaces per floor, and 40 in the building, of similar dimensions, which eliminate corridors to make the most of the floor. The server spaces are arranged on the threshold with other houses, while the rest of the common space and undifferentiated size, about 10m2, run along the south façade. The open kitchen makes housework visible and avoids gender roles. Finally, another terrace in the outer crown completes the spatial sequence allowing a private balcony in each house.
