The project is nestled in the unique lands of the region of Sierras Chicas (low mountain range) in Córdoba, Argentina, and encompasses a set of commercial premises designed around an existing lime kiln which highlights the traces of the industry that gave name to the town of La Calera (in Spanish, “lime kiln”) where it is located. Having an eight-meter difference of level and being next to Route 55 on both sides, the plot of land has a special feature: a stone wall that is visible from the top of the plot and the opening of the old kiln, a symbolic landmark declared to be heritage for the city. The proposal consists of a large building with an area of 873 square meters distributed in two levels. Since there is a water tank in the neighboring plot of land, a distance of 1.5 meters separates the building from the party wall, leaving a right of way connecting both stories by means of an exterior staircase.
