Les Casetes, are single-story housing units, highly differentiated from the tall buldings of the sorrounding environment. In these houses live people with different wills and cultures, strongly attached to the past and present, but with many uncertainties for the future: the fear of being evicted from their homes at any time due to high-speed gentrification. The aim of this project  is to consolidate a community that has the strength, the tools and the capacity to resist this challenge.

A solid and combative community requires a common space for debate. As designers we invited the neighbors through on site workshops where speaking, listening, and understanding their needs and proposals gave birth to a common social project: convert a green empty field abandoned for over 70 years , into a space for the community.
