The work was designed between 1957 and 1960 and is a building of 9 floors intended for apartments for the middle class. The hallmark of the work is the design of the façade, in which the architect uses the functional diagram of the beams and columns of reinforced concrete beams in conjunction with the use of clay bricks. Note the tapering of the front pillars that creates the movement of the front and finally the sign of rupture represented by the “slit windows” present from the fifth to the eighth floor which break the symmetry of the building.
