From the archtiects. The project is located in a square site of 364.00 m², at the corner of Matías Romero and Dr. José Maria Vertiz streets. The project consists of a building of 6 levels, the first level is for parking and lobby, while the other 5 levels are for apartments, with a total of 15 dwellings.
As it is located in a very important corner of the area, we designed a striking facade that would not break with the style of the neighborhood. To achieve this, we designed a grid that gives movement to the facade, with a play of openings that generate balconies and terraces that vary by level.
Similarly, we worked with the designer Ariel Rojo to create a concrete lattice that serves as a facade for the services (parking and circulation core). In order to give a greater contrast to the facade, the entire building is made of white concrete, easily differentiating the dwellings from the services.
The operation of the building is divided into a tower and a shared courtyard. The vertical circulation and emergency stairs are located in the same core at one end of the building, this core is confined to the concrete lattice, allowing constant ventilation for this space.
There is a lobby on the ground floor, communicating the parking area with the vertical circulation. All residential premises have natural lighting and ventilation, as well as the bathrooms and kitchens.
The roof of the building is intended for the exclusive use of residents from the upper level, leaving a space for common use for residents from all apartments.
Each level accommodates 3 apartments ranging from 65 to 95 m², which open onto the exterior facade. To this we add the interior side yard which provides excellent lighting for all apartments. To reduce the circulation, hallways are divided by vertical tensors with vegetation, leaving the back area as a private balcony.
All apartments have balconies and terraces in all areas, thus providing greater spaciousness in small apartments.
