Through recent examples by renowned international architects, this monographic work analyzes the difficulty of integrating new residential volumes into sites that are particularly narrow and difficult due to their situation and environment, and making them connect with the context through exemplary technical and formal solutions. In all of them, the facade concentrates the most interesting aspects of the composition and construction of the project; it is the face of the building, a privileged view onto the exterior, which connects with the neighbouring buildings in order to weave the urban fabric and close the profile of the street.
