Located on a residential neighborhood on the east side of the Bogotá city, this Giancarlo Mazzanti's design is formed by 7 stories tall adjacent buildings. The plot is long (45m) and thin (12m), but zoning requires 4m of separation, which ends up on a 35x8m useful area. This defined two apartments per floor, for the best views and daylight conditions.

The duplex apartments were developed as empty volumes to be occupied and designed according to the requirements of each client. Given that, apartments have an open plan, with service pipelines on the back that allow for the maximum flexibility to let each module to be treated as a complete autonomous element.

The project is developed as a traditional pillar/beam structure, with walls finished on white-bone concrete, brown stone floors and transparent and colored glass panels, that hide service zones to the outside. The first floor has a latticed wooden wall that uniforms, while giving character to, the entrance.
