Cordoba 188, designed by the architectural firm FRB Arquitectos, is a housing project with the main premise of respecting the listed house. Also, it sets a dialogue in a subtle way with the urban context of the street and the neighborhood. With this, the house becomes the commercial space (public) and an access door to the house. This gesture achieves the functional connection of the program and respect for the urban strip of the street, while the original courtyard functions as the articulator of the project and the lobby of the housing building.

Like the tree in the middle of the house, the use of wood-plastic composites helps reducing hardness of the building.
