"In the first collective housing project in Mexico, Pani proposed Corbusian tall blocks, occupying only 20% of the lot, increasing the density to1000 inhabitants per hectare and liberating collective space for green areas and services. The result is a group of nine blocks with thirteen floors each and six blocks with three floors each. The taller buildings are connected in a zigzag configuration following one of the diagonals of the lot and the lower ones are isolated and aligned with the street on the shorter sides of the lot. The north/south orientation of the blocks allows almost all the units to enjoy east/west views. All the superblock is pedestrianized and cars are parked around its perimeter. The ground floors are occupied by commercial facilities and circulation walkways. The apartments have two levels: an acess floor with the kitchen and dining area and another floor, above or below, with the bedrooms and a bathroom. The internal circulation corridor is reduced to one every three floors."
