The three towers in Valdebebas house 67 dwellings, various commercial spaces and garages. Instead of a place characterized by compact, continuous frontages, the designers choose to construct three slimmer buildings to expand the apartment overlooks

The three towers, designed by architects amann-canovas-maruri, allow the orientation of the apartments, open on three fronts without obstacles, covering a 180-degree horizon: from the mountains of the Madrid Sierra to the Castellana Skyline with its four towers. This conformation makes unnecessary the use of small interior courtyards, typical of Spanish buildings, and frees up space for a large open garden, full of light and from which to enjoy the view

The garden becomes the public heart of a project that enhances the community and its gatherings, not only in the tired repetition of the commercial, but in the emergence of spontaneous convivial situations.
The apartments are characterized by large openings to the outside; the load-bearing structure is displaced in the perimeter walls and the sanitary blocks are concentrated to allow versatility and flexibility in the interior layout

The buildings' exterior appearance is metallic and shiny, deliberately eluding the earthy, brown tones so common in Madrid housing. Corners are rounded and adapted to the contours of the site. Once vegetation grows in the garden between the towers, the buildings will be part of this new ecosystem of home, life, and nature
