The program is solved by defining two buildings placed a space linear connection between the streets Cavallers and Joglar Segali, causing both to access to housing and commercial property from this space, the new square Josep Solans.

The two volumes of building constructions fit perimeter of the plot. Thus, the block of the street Timbalers has a section of ground floor + 4 levels, and Roser Street block decreases adapting the building height of the Cultural House building and adopts a section of ground floor + 2 levels.

The creaked of Timbalers street building allows all homes open to opposing facades, thus enabling cross ventilation, and the building of Roser street solves cross ventilation organizing the plant with two apartments that open to opposing facades and the remaining four in corner also airing two distinct facades.
