Valencia, capital of the homonymous community, is a city rich in history. The 13th century Gothic Cathedral and La Loja de la Seda, a commercial market built in the 16th century, are some of the most important testimonies of the past. The City of Science firmed by Santiago Calatrava is an icon of the last century, embodying the perfect balance between contemporaneity and antiquity that characterizes the city of Valencia. In this mix of different ages, the barrio de El Carme – the old quarter – has now become the hub of city life and a place to imagine Valencia Social Housing. The building will have to give a new image to a part of the urban fabric making this sign of redevelopment a pole of reference for the local community. An architecture of value that knows how to respond to the housing needs of the historic center, making the most of the cultural and social identity of the context. An urban hub that is able to give new values to the local community.
