A Lot with Little

April 5, 2010

Project by María Magnasco.

The project, located in Totoras, in the province of Santa Fé, is a continuous strip that defines the border of a plaza and holds fifteen residential units. Within a 20 x 50 m lot—oriented to the north and located by a boulevard—the project is stimulated by the possibility of establishing a visual connection with the rural landscape. This idea generated a rectangular plan with north-south ventilation that framed the horizon of the landscape. The building is composed of 6 units of 55 m² on the ground floor and 9 units of 45 m² on the floor above, each one having terraces or private green spaces. Young people that are looking for open areas to develop an artistic activity or families with young kids can enjoy exterior spaces within the unit.
