Social Housing in Jerez

Jerez de la Frontera, Spain

The chosen typology for the set of dwellings is the closed block with an interior open courtyard. Thus, we built 16 dwellings per floor, with two vertical cores that provide access to all the dwellings from galleries that are open towards the courtyard.
The typology designed for the dwellings builds an outer perimeter corridor that contains the living rooms and bedrooms. It is closed to the outside by an enclosure that becomes a thick wall, which to the interior contains closets and shelves, and to the exterior protects the openings from inclement weather, sun and rain.
