Project description

In 2008 PROVICOSA launched an architectural competition to design fifty-four council houses in the village of Cerro Muriano on the outskirts of the village within a new urbanisation.

At MEDIOMUNDO arquitectos we proposed an alternative typology when designing these terraced council houses. Rather than the usual format of front garden house back garden, we proposed a t-shaped building on two floors with two open green spaces which allowed for the creation of shadowed spaces provided by the living quarters fundamental to life in Cordoba.
