Description

The complex is a rectangular shape isolated building divided into two blocks and composed by a ground floor, which adapts to the streets that limit the plot with different level changes, and by five type floors. Block A has two basements while block B has only one. The approach of the structural system is very orderly and rational. The horizontal structure is proposed as a solid slab as it is necessary to compensate for the large overhangs that are one of the great differentiating features of the structure. The joint between the ceilings and the cantilevers is realized with a beam that provides torsional rigidity to the set. The vertical structure is solved with reinforced concrete ribs of 20cm thickness executed “in situ”.

The low resistance of the soil and the position of the phreatic level makes foundation with a solid slab to be considered. Containment is solved with continuous retaining walls.
