The proposal is an apartments building on Avila Camacho Avenue on a site that faces the Guadalajara Country Club. Being Avila Camacho Avenue very noisy and chaotic, the project is raised one level and the proposed building is almost completely solid towards the avenue. Each apartment is projected in 2 levels with large windows that face the golf course of the Club, placing on this side most of the public and private areas.

Superpositions of concrete cubes that contain the private areas are projected towards the exterior, creating balconies in the social areas of the apartments.
