The blocks have very clear and forceful lines with elegant eaves on the roofs that shed a continuous strip of shadow on projections. The pitched ceramic tile roofs have diversity of inclined planes which intersect with others creating reddish intricate plans that crown the various buildings. These roofs are crossed by slender chimneys contrasting with the horizontality of the whole.
The balconies were designed by architects as curved trays that are repeated on each floor, bringing movement and a very modern image to the urbanization. No detail is chosen at random and every decision made in the project is one step closer to the harmony of the whole complex.
