85 State-subsidised homes in Son Gibert

 

Client: IBAVI, Instituto Balear de la Vivienda
Location: C/Plataner, Son Gibert, Palma de Mallorca
Area: 9.422 m²
Project: 2000

The site where the two apartment buildings were built comprised an entire city block, and walkways were created in the area between the two buildings which linked up with existing pedestrian walkways, thereby connecting the interior patios and gardens with the public space.

The main aim of the building design for the apartments was to provide the living/dining area and kitchen with a dual orientation. A key project objective was to ensure that the layout of the apartments would provide ample illumination and cross-ventilation.
