The potential of an extended industrial sgraffito technology gave rise to this new proposal for an apartment-hotel facade.

Plant motifs, widely used in the local facade geometry, are the inspiration for this project: an organic bas relief that brings to mind the district's street trees in winter. The continuity between solids and voids allows the facade to be viewed as a whole, rather than as a composition of openings. The balconies are set flush with the plane, integrating the sgraffito relief pattern.
