It should be highlighted that the extensive roofing is made up of just one unit, and its inclination is convenient when battling the slaps of the rain as it falls in curtains on its surface. As there is a considerable amount of space between both sides of the external corridor, residents can continue with their daily activities under its shelter even if it rains.

That’s exactly what the creators of Casa M sought to do!
