Building Pueyrredón 1101

The building is located at the intersection of two tree-lined busy streets, a few meters from main avenues and university centers of the city of Rosario, creating an ideal environment for young people and students.  In this way, the building contributes to the city by responding to the increasing housing demand in the area for young professionals and university students from neighboring cities.

The land is the northwest corner of a low-rise and small-scale square. In this context, the building becomes a protagonist, being easily seen and recognized by people and vehicles wich pass by. 

The city regulations allow the total occupation of the lot, which provides the possibility of open and ventilate all the rooms to the two fronts and create the corner opening.

Its structure, made of seen concrete with wooden boards formwork, creates a pattern of additions and substracitons, as a game of empty and full. The main intention was to create cross visuals in the interior with a facade that becames dynamic in the exterior, through large double height balconies with tall trees. Besides, it privileges the quality and natural illumination of the interior spaces, by extending visual limits of the occupants. A double height entrance is projected, as a continuation of the public sidewalk with abundant vegetation and a bicycle rack, favoring a more sustainable life, in contact with nature. This way, entrance to the building takes place through a large "indoor plaza". This space links public and private life, providing permeability and urban connectivity, through its path and spatial and visual continuity.

The design alternates three different types of units per floor, where the main premise is the spatiality and continuity of the interiors. They have their wet cores forming a common piece embedded in the central sector of the plant in order to free space for internal use, allowing the flexibility of spaces, as well as the different permitted uses, such as living or working.

The interior design of the units is stripped and net, so that each one has the added value on its balcony, posed as a continuous environment in relation to the interior. In its upper floors, the project has two levels with commen spaces green terraces and own swimming pool, for the recreation of the residents, allowing impressive panoramic views of the city.

The building takes care of the local environment, contributing with urban design and new green areas, which exceed the green areas that existed before at the house previously on the site.

Besides, the main premise is to provide green living quality to its residents, by establishing a continually relationship between its interior, exterior and the enviroment.
