Spanish term or phrase:compacto
Has anyone come across "compacto" to mean something like "self-contained / all-inclusive / integral"?
I've got "Modelo urbano compacto" referring to an office building. Would this be "compact urban design" or "integral..."? TIA
Explanation: I would stick with compact in an architectural context, as you may be overinterpreting otherwise.
