Garellano Master Plan

The proposal seeks to provide this important area with new spaces for circulation.

The project is based on the creation of a square and a public park, whose shape has the effect of widening and linking the geometry of the different grids to obtain an ordered structure of roads and accommodating new residential buildings.

The high demand for residential buildings is the other great design challenge. 

Therefore, the layout of the buildings is determined by logical environmental criteria: the amount of sunlight and protection from prevailing winds.
