To design a piece of contemporary architecture on the roof of an Art deco building in the Condado area, is a task that must consider the balance between the new and existing structures and its visual impact from the street. In search of a subtle dialogue between these two structures, a linear terrace removed from the edge of the building on the frontal part of the roof is proposed. Using studies of pedestrian visual angles, stepped levels are implemented across the structure so as to minimize the visual impact from the street below.
