, vegetable garden...) acting as an incentive to the common life of the residents.
The structure of the building is completely made of concrete, while its facade is 80% composed of metal cladding, and 20% of stained concrete. The building was built in three phases according to a classical construction process.
The design of the balconies incorporates an innovative system of planters permitting to grow up plants, flowers and little trees on the south facade of the building. These planters have been already planted before the completion and include an automatic irrigation system which ensures the upkeep of the plants. In a few years, the inhabitants will live in a real vertical garden without having to worry too much about it.
