The intersection of the block with a diagonal passage opens up views of the church and provides an alternative route to the city center. By dividing the mass into smaller structures, it defines a human scale of development in contrast to the massive new construction in the immediate vicinity. The terraced setback of the facades adjacent to the passage allows for natural light and sunlight to illuminate the apartments while creating a new attractive and intimate public space.
