The residential building made of 73 apartments on the seashore of Málaga is a project by architect Alejandro Muñoz Miranda. It completes the site near the industrial vestige that, for more than a decade, has been left unbuilt due to the economic crisis. The building is placed next to a protected smokestack from the beginning of the 20th century, reminding the past industrial activity in the area. The residential structure creates a connection with the chimney through materiality: the cladding is made of bricks too, but used with a different technique forming a facade in glassfibre reinforced concrete; volumes emerge on the exterior producing a continous movement.
Inside, two courtyards are covered with a white corrugated sheet, the same material we find in the corridors leading to the apartments, and protected above by glass skylights. The apartments are based on the concept of having a circular functioning space between the living room, the terrace and the kitchen. Under the construction there is a space for garage: the same materials of the facade have been used for the entrance, while the space underground is made of concrete.
