Eladio 13 is part of a series of buildings located in the district of Guadalupe (Santa Fe, Argentina), originally a suburban neighborhood, that is currently being populated by young people and students who prefer environmental quality and proximity to their universities.

This urban change has led us to a series of design investigations about housing developments in low-density neighborhoods. We have been working with typological variants with private common areas conceived as continuity of the public space.

Stairs, walkways and open hallways are transitions between the street and inner spaces. In this case, the arrangement of the building plan is the result of the pre-existing one-storey-house that was completely preserved. Ground floor units were placed inside the existing walls and the two upper floors were arranged following that perimeter.

New walls, in light-weight masonry, have been coated with white plaster in order to merge the new with the old. In constrast, walkways and stairs were constructed in iron and wood.
