Belgrano is one of the refined neighborhoods of Buenos Aires, with a large number of old and important stately homes.
As a counterpoint, modern, sophisticated and comfortable buildings have been built in this neighborhood and there is no doubt that the one located on Amenabar Street is one of them.
It is set back from the official line, breaking the linearity of the adjoining facades.
The client, a young woman with two small children, proposed that the apartment should become her permanent residential home. She emphasized the intention of including the common use spaces to generate a greater spatial fluidity, communication and comfort.
In relation to the materiality, we looked for simplicity and the use of exposed concrete, which was considered adequate both for aesthetic reasons as well as for low maintenance, giving the house a contemporary image.
Behind this façade of full and empty spaces, which were also replicated in the back front, we were able to create an interesting game in the interior of the house, depriving the rest area and the living-dining room, providing spatialities, visuals and ventilations that are rarely found in buildings.
The result was a proposal that integrated the entire floor plan, meeting the client's needs. Harmonious spaces were generated with two of the most important elements that human beings need for a better quality of life: natural lighting and ventilation.
