Built on a sloping site, Parents House is composed of five floors. The project was commissioned by an NGO that cares for children diagnosed with cancer, as a place where their parents and caregivers could stay free of charge and receive social and counselling services. In addition to parents, the residence also accommodates the children receiving outpatient services. The building’s unique facade geometry has a concrete shell construction system that allowed for the construction of the non-aligned shape of the walls. It is constructed as an energy-efficient building with LED lighting, solar panels to heat water, an energy-efficient heat pump, and a green rooftop.
