The Energy Living building located on southeast side of Medellin, materializes through the addition of rectangular prisms which are grouped in different heights to find the best direction to different places in the city. The program provides housing solutions for single people or couples, with 71 apartments between 53 and 130 sqm of area, with modular and flexible designs spaces that allow different inhabit typologies.
The architectural plan is a square of 21 x 21 m, the vertical circulations and technical areas are located in the center of the building to occupy the perimeter with the apartment units. The base is a volume that emerges from the prisms and defines the facade facing toward the entrance lane, creating a transition between urban and private.
At the lobby, there is a restaurant, administrative areas and lounges. Social areas of the building are located on the last floor where the gym and wet areas are located overlooking the city.
