It is a residential building, about 12,600 m2, located in the city of Tarragona. The building consists of a basement and 6 floors above ground. The perimeter of the building is faithfully adapted to the outer perimeter of the plot, obtaining a linear block 13 meters deep, in the form of a "U", housing a courtyard inside.

Windmill has realized the project of the foundation and the structure of the building. The new building is made up of reticular slabs for above ground floors and reinforced concrete slabs for the basement. Exceptionally, the balconies are made with reinforced slabs, to meet the architectural requirements of composition and volume of the facades.

One of the most relevant aspects of the project has been the study of building expansion joints to control the effects of thermal shrinkage and expansion of concrete, given the dimensions of the block.
