Quattro – Apartment Building

Best Implemented Project of Residential Estate

About the project
The building has six floors, including garage, a small room for common use, and seven apartments. There are three different types of apartments, with areas ranging from 50 to 110 square meters, and innovative floor plans, which are different from the traditional division and make possible for the residents to set their own space distribution, fulfilling several different financial and family requirements. The design and construction of Quattro, a project based on a lean and ordinary program and a strict budget, were an exercise of reflection about the way architects are capable oftakingover the construction process itself, providing alternatives for multifamily buildings and for the urban design.
