The project will physically connect with the surrounding apartment buildings creating an opportunity for social and commercial exchange in between existing and new residents of the block. The scheme will consist of several levels, the populated horizontal circulation will discover the vertical dispersion, encouraging engagement and privacy simultaneously. The circulation between programs will allow the permanent residents of Benidorm to inhabit the linkage slots and to transform part of their living spaces into micro markets, restaurants, offices, bars, and entertainment when needed. During the winter months, the inhabitants can adapt their flats to other functions more appealing to the growing elderly community or other locals from the Old Town.
