The project will have a total 4.287 sqm spread across 114 studios on 5 floors with different typologies, all will include one bedroom, private bathroom, kitchenette, secretary and dinner table. The leisure areas will be spread across several floors, external areas and library and a coworking space will also be included.  

The studios are destined to long term rental, for dislocated students and young professionals who are just starting their careers, with the project being focused on the well-being of its users, mixing cultures and sharing experiences.
